This super easy crock pot recipe produces fantastic pulled pork every time! If you love a great sandwich, you have got to try our Crock Pot Root Beer Pulled Pork!
Every once in a while it just hits me that one of our FAVORITE recipes is not on the site. That is what happened when I was making up a big batch of pulled pork the other day. I have been making this recipe for years and I just love it. It is definitely a staple around here and something that you have to try if you haven’t!
I just love recipes like this. You toss a handful of ingredients into your slow cooker and it turns out perfect every time. We serve this up on sandwiches, eat it on it’s own, add it to the top of nachos or salad… you get the picture. We use it for all kind of things! We like to top it with BBQ sauce, ranch and sometimes even taco sauce– or a combination– yum!

I just got a new “iStir” crock pot. Will I be able to use the stirring system to “pull” the pork after it is cooked?
You could try but I am not really sure. You will not want the attachment on while it is cooking because it will kick on every 2 hours automatically. After cooking it might work, but I am not sure how much resistance the paddle will agree to…a stand mixer will push on through but not sure about the iStir paddles. If you try, let me know how it goes. Enjoy!

In reference to your Root Beer Pulled Pork, you did not mention of how much Lawry’s Seasoned Salt to use. Can I guess a tablespoon from what I am seeing in the pictures?
Sorry about that! It is just to taste. I use it pretty liberally.
