Root beer pulled pork, it's better then it sounds...

I'm pretty sure I've mentioned before how much I suck at cooking. I'm just not good at it - especially if it involves a lot of ingredients. I succeeded in dinner last night though by making crock pot pulled pork and yes, I did pat myself on the back!

I had gotten the idea a few days ago on someone's blog but when I went to look up the ingredients, couldn't find what blog it was (ugh!) so I ended up getting the recipe my co-worker uses. It was thebombdotcom!


These were ALL of the ingredients! 4 things...

1 Pork loin (I think the one I got was 3ish pounds but I honestly didn't look)
1 can of beef broth
1 bottle of BBQ sauce
1 can of A&W Root Beer -- Since it wasn't on sale, I didn't feel like buying a whole pack just for one can so I bought a bottle and dumped about half in.

Directions:
Put the pork loin into the crock pot with broth and approx. 1/4 of the bottle of BBQ sauce. Cook on low for 5 hours

Take loin out of crock pot and shred with a fork. Before putting shredded pork back in the crock pot, dump the remaining broth. You don't need it any more.

In a bowl, combine the root beer and the rest of the BBQ sauce. Pour over the shredded pork and mix to make sure it's well covered. Cook on low for another 1-2 hours.

That's it! Easy, right?



Beau even said that it was good and wouldn't mind if I made it again. Score!


Speaking of Beau, he saw this video online last night, shared it with me, and I knew I had to share it with all of you. Enjoy...



He also decided that we are getting new bedding.


I'll admit, it's pretty cool but I think he's lost his mind. Not only do I not want to wake up on blood splatter every morning but how am I suppose to decorate a bedroom around this?!


Have a wonderful day!

That's how my dad makes his pulled pork, and he puts apple juice in it, too! Makes it super yummy :)

I've also used Coca Cola instead of root beer and then you don't need to add the BBQ sauce

I've actually made something similar to this before, and oh my gosh. It is the best thing ever! Anything involving pork and the croc pot makes me weak at the knees. Haha.

Happy Friday!
