Pulled Pork with Root Beer Sauce

Hi There...
I talked to a hard working lady yesterday and she needed a recipe that she could put together and have a easy dinner when she gets home. Well this is a crock-pot recipe and you can't get any easier than that. I got this recipe from my daughter and have shared it with many friends...you'll love it cousin!

PULLED PORK WITH ROOT BEER SAUCE

1 2 1/2 to 3 lb pork sirloin roast
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
1 T. cooking oil
2 medium onion, cut into thin wedges
1 cup root beer ( not diet)
2 T. minced garlic
3 Cups root beer (two 12 z. cans or bottles)
1 C. bottled chili sauce
Several dashes bottled hot sauce (optional)
8 to 10 hamburger buns split
lettuce leaves (optional)
tomato slices (optional)

Trim fat from meat. If necessary, cut meat to fit into a crockery cooker. Sprinkle meat with salt and pepper. In a large skillet brown meat on all sides in hot oil. Drain off fat. Transfer meat to cooker and add the onions, the 1 Cup of root beer, and the garlic.

Cover and cook on low heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.

Meanwhile, for sauce, in a medium saucepan combine the 3 Cups root beer and the chili sauce. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Boil gently uncovered, stirring occasionally about 30 minutes or until mixture is reduced to 2 cups. If desired add the hot sauce.

Transfer meat to a serving platter. Remove the onions from the cooking juices and place on the platter. Discard the juices. Using 2 forks, pull meat apart into shreds. To serve, add the meat to the buns and spoon on the sauce.
