Pork ‘n Beer

13 Sep

My aunt from DC was visiting over the Labor Day holiday and we invited her and my parents over for dinner before she had to catch her flight back home. We set out to get our important ingredients that morning: pork tenderloin and root beer. Usually we have at least one can or bottle of root beer in the house, but I had just finished my last bottle the evening before we started on this crockpot meal. We went to a few stores that morning. My husband got some fresh cut tenderloin from the butcher and a bottle of barbeque sauce from the Asian market, then went to the liquor store next door to get a couple of cans of Mug’s root beer. We also bought some sourdough buns from Whole Foods for our guests. Then we bought some white corn at the corner store in our neighborhood, 5 for $1 and very sweet!

So how do you make pulled-pork? Put the tenderloin in the crockpot, pour in one can of root beer, cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours, drain. Stir in bbq sauce (wheat-free) and pull that pork. Serve on lightly toasted sourdough buns, or in my case over steamed white rice… Tada! Serves about 6-8 people.
