Oh my, this is so delicious! Make the meat for pulled pork sandwiches or do the nachos...can't go wrong! Crock pot makes this an easy entree that will be made often!

An easy recipe for pulled pork that resulted in a tender roast, but I was disappointed in the lack flavor. It was great with barbecue sauce on buns. But for nachos, we like more flavor and spice.

This is wonderful!! I used root beer and the end result was melt-in-your-mouth pork! This recipe is so versatile because you can do almost anything with it and the crock pot does all the work. Some of us had it with corn tortillas and all the condiments indicated in the recipe; others piled it on buns with barbecue sauce. Next time we'll try it on tortilla chips! This is my new go-to pulled pork recipe! Super easy and delicious!Volunteer Field Editor
