With fall comes the slow cooker, warm hoodies, and football games. This pulled pork recipe uses the popular Not Your Father’s Root Beer to put a twist on this classic. Toss it in the crock-pot to make a sweet and savory dish perfect for serving at your next football party or drag your slow cooker down to the tailgating party. Even better you can freeze this recipe into smaller portions for quick and easy munching.
The alcohol cooks out while leaving your pulled pork so tender it can be pulled apart with your bare hands. The distict flavor left behind is unique and perfect for serving to a crowd even if you opt for a cheaper cut of meat to get more for your money.
To add plenty of flavor and add your own twist to this slow cooker pulled pork. While this recipe works well with a bottle of Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ you can use ay barbecue sauce you enjoy. I recommend making your own homemade barbecue sauce to really add flavor.
