Slow Cooker Recipe: Root Beer Barbecue Pulled Pork

Nothing is tastier than a pulled pork sandwich, but who wants to go through all that work!? Well, make your pork in a slow cooker! It is ready when you are, and no work beyond using two forks to shred. Easy-peasy, and oh so good. We will make the shredded barbecue pork for dinner one night, then have leftovers for lunch the next day. The rest of the barbecue pork is frozen and defrosted for pork sandwiches. You may have a different idea on using up all this fabulous tasting meat.

Slow Cooker Recipe: Root Beer Barbecue Pulled Pork Notes:

• You can freeze leftovers for later reheating. Just make certain you use freezer grade containers. Hubby buys them in giant packs, and we keep the extras down the basement. Our freezer sometimes looks like a frozen soup factory exploded in it. We freeze soup, stews, leftovers, garden vegetables, etc for later use all year long!

• You can use any commercially made barbecue sauce you like, any flavor you like. Sweet Baby Rays was used as people like sweet!

• You can use any commercially made root beer you like. As with all drinks, different root beers have different flavor botes – from sassafras (artificial these days) to vanilla tones to a more molasses-y flavor, not all root beers are created equal. Get what you like.

• Always consult your slow cooker directions as the times I have listed may cook slower or faster depending on your unit.

Southern Tomato Pie Notes:

• You can either use a store bought pie crust, or make your own pie crust. This recipe uses a store-bought pie crust. If you prefer to make your own pie crust versus ready-made, try this pie crust recipe. It is a bit sweet which is a nice contrast.

• You can use: green tomatoes for this recipe, red tomatoes, yellow tomatoes, orange tomatoes – a combination not only give this southern tomato pie different flavors but, it also makes a visual impact. However, there is no reason you cannot use all one type and color tomato.

• It is extremely important your tomatoes are fully dried by the paper towels. I cannot stress enough how important it is to fully dry out the tomatoes.

• After the first bake (10-15 minutes) the crust doesn’t need to be golden but should look cooked, with no raw spots.
