Root beer pulled pork from the slow cooker.

This is one of our favorite recipes for during the week (or on swim meet days).  Simple.  Easy.  Tasty!  What more can you want.  I do vary the recipe depending on my taste that day so here is my version from today :)


2-3 lb pork shoulder (I used picnic style boneless)
1 bottle of root beer (individual serving size)
4-5 tbl ground cumin
2 tsp of dried oregano
1 tsp salt (adjust per your taste)
1/2 tsp cayenne
Pinch of ground cinnamon


Into your slow cooker, add the pork shoulder and one bottle of root beer.  Cover and cook on low for 6 – 8 or so hours.   1 hour prior to serving, take the pork out of the slow cooker and shred it with two forks.  Return it back to slow cooker and add all of the spices.  If you like it spicier, add 1 tsp ground cayenne and one jalapeño (optional).

Serve on rolls and enjoy!

This sounds really good. I’m going to be making this sometime soon.
