Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Root Beer Barbecue Sauce

With the upcoming holidays; Father’s Day and Fourth of July, and all the Potlucks and Picnics I’m sure you will be enjoying over the Summer, you can never have enough easy recipes to serve. These Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Root Beer Barbecue Sauce get their rich flavor from Root Beer and Chili Sauce. And since they are cooked in the Slow Cooker they are also super easy.

When we went shopping for the pork roast for these sandwiches, we discovered that pork is actually cheaper right now than ground beef. We used a boneless pork sirloin roast, and although it was a little over $5 for the roast, it made a lot of sandwich meat.

Serve them on a nice soft bun, with lettuce and tomato, and of course bottled Root Beer too!

  3. Sounds great, I love Root Beer and want to try making this, but one question: what is Chili Sauce?

    • Hi Ben, Chili Sauce is sold near the ketchup, it comes in a glass bottle.
      Let us know what you think after trying the recipe. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Does the chili sauce make it hot or spicy? I’m just wondering if it would be too hot for my kiddos :) Thanks!

    • Hi Trisha, no the chili sauce is not spicy, unless you buy the kind that is spicy. We just used the regular kind.
      Happy Cooking!
