  • 7-8 lbs. pork roast (Do a 3-4 lb pork roast if you are just doing your family)
  • 4 cups root beer
  • 5 (8oz) cans tomato sauce

  • 3 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 - 3 cups brown sugar
  • pepper to taste
  • 4 tsp. cumin



Step 1

Recipe Note: The above sauce makes a ton! So if you have a 3-4 lb pork roast, half the sauce.

Salt and pepper roast and cook in crock pot 8 hours or overnight on low in water. In the morning remove the roast from the crockpot and pull apart with fork, removing fat. Drain all the water in the crockpot. Don't overshred the pork or it will turn mushy. Add the rest of the ingredients to the crockpot and add shredded pork. Cook another 4 hours in crockpot on low.
