Pulled pork BBQ is a favorite of mine and cooking it in root beer really does make for tender, delicious meat. For me, this is a great, simple 4-star recipe that I'm able to make 5-star with a couple easy alterations.
When I put the pork loin in my slow cooker, I dice up a large, sweet onion and press the pieces onto the top of the pork loin. I then sprinkle a couple tablespoons of sugar and a modest amount of cayenne pepper on top of the onions. The sugar allows the onions to caramelize and the onions and spice make for perfect, savory pulled pork that's flavorful even without sauce, if you'd like! I do like my sauce though and prefer to use a bottle of my favorite Carolina sauce or Sweet Baby Ray's, depending on my mood.
I serve this BBQ on top of a slice of gluten-free bread.
Note for Celiacs: make sure the BBQ sauce you use is gluten-free.
