Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

I can't say enough good things about this pork.  It was easy.  It was delicious.  It was very affordable.  (Pork was on sale that week, and a Boston butt is even more affordable than a pork tenderloin and still so flavorful!)   It only used a few ingredients.  You have to try this! 

Depending on the size of the Boston butt you get (and they're all pretty big), it feeds a crowd, so you could easily do some pulled pork sandwiches for the Super Bowl or any other get-together you have coming up.  Ours had a small bone in it, but all the meat just fell off the bone, so it easy to remove.  YUM!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

1 (3lb) Boston butt
Minced onion flakes
12 oz root beer
1 (18oz) bottle barbecue sauce
8 hamburger buns, split and lightly toasted

Season the pork with salt, pepper, and onion flakes, and place the pork in the slow cooker.  Pour root beer over the meat.  Cover with lid and cook on low until well cooked and the pork shreds easily, 5.5-6 hours.  Remove the pork from the slow cooker and shred with forks; drain crock pot.  Put pork back into crock pot and cover with desired amount of barbecue sauce.  Cook on low for an additional hour.  Serve on hamburger buns.
