Root Beer Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Root Beer Pulled Pork Sandwiches

1 - 12oz can root beer
Pork Tenderloin (~ 2.2 lbs)
3 cloves of garlic
1 bottle favorite BBQ sauce (I still like Sweet Baby Rays)
1 Walla Walla Sweet Onion (optional)

Place pork tenderloin and root beer into slow cooker for 4-5 hrs on high (or 8 hrs on low).  Remove excess liquid from slow cooker and shred pork with forks.  Add 3/4 bottle of BBQ sauce and mix together.  Serve with Hawaiian sweet rolls and extra BBQ sauce. 

Optional add ins -- cook onion with pork until so tender they fall apart.  I also like to serve my sandwiches with coleslaw. 

Frozen Mamas:   Thaw and reheat pork (I usually just use the microwave).  You may need to add a little water or chicken broth if you like it more moist.  Thaw, then wrap rolls in tin foil, heat in oven until nice and warm.  Add pork, extra BBQ sauce to roll.  Depending on how hungry your family is the pork is enough for 2-3 sandwiches per person.  I highly recommend saving some for pulled pork and cheese quesidillas the next night.
