My hubby loves the pulled pork from Trader Joe’s, so I’ve been looking for a similar recipe I could make at home. I was intrigued when a friend of mine pinned Root Beer Pulled Pork http://pinterest.com/pin/91901648616715530/. I repinned it immediately and a week later I was ready to give it a try.
Root Beer Pulled Pork is a crock pot meal, another bonus! It is a dump and go meal. Since Sundays are busy for us, I thought it would be a perfect day for a crock pot meal. I used Hansen’s Root Beer and Trader Joe’s BBQ Sauce for the dish.
When we arrived home, I could smell the BBQ was burning. I took a peak in the crock pot, and though I followed the directions and had an hour left to cook, the BBQ along the sides of the crock pot was indeed burning. I scraped it out and tested the meat. It looked cooked, so I turned off the crock pot and decided to serve dinner a little early.
Truth be told, this dish was just so/so. It could have been the BBQ I chose, which did have a bit of a quick at such a high quantity. My hubby, who dumps Frank’s Hot Sauce on just about everything, even found it to be a little much. So, if I decided to try this one again, I would try a different BBQ sauce with it and cook it for a shorter interval. Though I am temped to just find another recipe on Pinterest for pulled pork. There are a ton of them.
