Pulled Pork Taters Recipe

Pulled Pork Taters Recipe

This recipe is as manly as it gets, part meat, part potatoes—completely delicious. If there’s ever a time to be jealous of a potato, it’s now. —Shannon M Harris, Tyler, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 6 hours YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 boneless pork loin roast (2 to 3 pounds)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 cup root beer
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Louisiana-style hot sauce
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 6 large potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 tablespoons sour cream

Directions

  • 1. Place roast in a 5-qt. slow cooker. Top with onion. Combine the ketchup, root beer, vinegar, Worcestershire, hot sauce, salt, pepper and mustard; pour over top. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or until meat is tender.
  • 2. Meanwhile, scrub and pierce potatoes. Bake at 400° for 50-55 minutes or until tender.
  • 3. Remove pork; shred meat with two forks. Skim fat from cooking juices; transfer to a large saucepan. Bring liquid to a boil. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; gradually stir into the pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Return meat to cooking juices; heat through.
  • 4. With a sharp knife, cut an "X" in each potato; fluff with a fork. Top each with butter and pork mixture; sprinkle with cheese. Top with sour cream. Yield: 6 servings.
