This was a hit! The root beer flavor is definitely noticeable, but not too strong and the Tabasco added just enough kick to make the sandwich interesting. We liked dipping the bread in the juice.
2 lbs boneless pork shoulder roast
1 large yellow onion, sliced in rings
1-2 Tbsp Tabasco sauce
1 cup chili sauce
2 cups root beer
1/2 tsp vanilla
buns, soft rolls, or cooked rice for serving
Put the meat into your crock pot. Add sliced onion. Top with Tabasco sauce, chili sauce, root beer and vanilla. Cover and cook on low for about 8 hours, or until pork shreds easily with a fork. Serve over rice or on toasted buns.
