To make easy barbecue pulled pork sandwiches, place a 2-pound pork tenderloin and 1 12-ounce can of root beer in a slow cooker. Cover, and cook on low for six to seven hours. Shred the pork, leaving it in the slow cooker, and stir in 1 18-ounce bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce. Serve the shredded pork on hamburger buns.
Alternatively, try making barbecue pulled pork sandwiches with a homemade sauce that features cola and liquid smoke. Begin by whisking together 1 tablespoon salt, 1 tablespoon black pepper, 1 tablespoon paprika and 1 tablespoon garlic powder. Rub this mixture onto a 2 1/2-pound boneless pork loin roast. Line the slow cooker with a slow cooker liner if desired, and place the roast inside.
In a small bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups diet cola with 1 1/2 cups ketchup and 2 tablespoons liquid smoke. Stir well, and pour this mixture over the pork. Place the lid on the slow cooker, and cook for six to seven hours on low or for three to four hours on high. Use two forks to shred the pork. Serve the pulled pork on Portuguese rolls. This recipe makes six sandwiches.
