Root Beer BBQ

Here is a new recipe I tried for our No Football Super Bowl Party...YES! We actually did NOT watch the Super Bowl, but I did make some yummy food. Hope your family enjoys it. I made extra for my freezer and a Freezer Swap I am in. Delicious!

3 pound pork sirloin roast
1 cup root beer
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
2 cups onion, wedged
2 Tbl. garlic, minced

24 ounces root beer
12 ounce bottle chili sauce

Trim any visible fat from roast. Cut it into 4 pieces and place in slow cooker. Pour one cup root beer over the roast and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Add garlic and onions. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours (or on high for 4-5.) I put mine on right before bed and let it cook all night. (Warning: It fills the house with AMAZING smells.)

In a medium saucepan, combine the 24 ounces of root beer with the chili sauce. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Boil gently; uncovered; stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes or until sauce is reduced to 2 cups. (I actually just combined these 2 ingredients and added them after I shredded the pork and then cooked for a few more hours, but I am just kinda lazy like that.)

Remove roast and onions from the slow cooker and allow to cool enough to handle. Discard broth. Shred meat. Pour root beer sauce over all. Stir to coat. Allow to cool completely and place in freezer bags or containers.

FREEZE for later. (Of course, you may want to eat some now, too and then freeze the rest.)

To serve:
Thaw and heat. You can top sandwich buns with lettuce and tomato.

Happy Cooking.
