Root Beer Pulled Pork

Author Stephanie O'Dea received this pulled pork recipe from a fan, and she liked it so much, she included it in More Make It Fast, Cook It Slow (Hyperion), her latest slow-cooker cookbook. The root beer helps to braise the pork, while infusing it with sweet, unexpected flavor. Serve it with whole wheat rolls for extra fiber.
