Slow Cooker Root Beer Pulled Pork

This is one of the easiest recipes ever, and the end result is a nice batch of tangy, subtly sweet pork that kids and adults will enjoy.

This recipe is truly foolproof. I often make this at the beginning of the week and use the leftovers for lunches. It makes great sliders or sandwiches. It can also be used to make this yummy Slow Cooker Brunswick Stew.

If we are having a big group over, I sometimes serve this with my favorite crunchy slaw, best ever mac & cheese, and foolproof chocolate chess pie. If using more pork than 2 pounds, I add more root beer and sauce accordingly.

I hope you enjoy this, and I would love to hear from you~so feel free to leave comments! Thanks so Screen Shot 2015-03-24 at 10.06.44 AMmuch for reading. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
