This recipe is as manly as it gets, part meat, part potatoes—completely delicious. —Shannon M Harris, Tyler, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 6 hours YIELD:6 servings


  • 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

  • 6 tablespoons sour cream


  • 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.
