Rootbeer Pulled Pork With Coleslaw

Pulled pork is a meal that gets made quite a bit during baseball season around here. I can get usually two meals out of the pork roast. The pulled pork is usually the second night's meal. It was some variation of a pork roast (I have so many) so many, many roast ago that a friend told me I had to try it this way. Of course, I did put my own spin on it being the rebel I am. I do have to say that it is pretty dang good.

Rootbeer Pulled Pork With Coleslaw

1 regular rootbeer (no diet)
1 pork roast
2 TB Firemen's seasoning (or your favorite seasoning for BBQ)
1/2 onion
1 jar of your favorite BBQ sauce (I bought what was on sale)
oil for browning the roast
just take a couple TB of oil and a pan...any pan and get it good and hot
I make this seasoning that I call Firemen's Seasoning We love it. I sprinkle it on veggies, potatoes, meats. I make it in huge batches. Its smokey and a little spicy but nothing that the kids will cry over (trust me..The Ballplayer is antispice)
sprinkle it all over the meat. Bathe in it. Get it all over the counters by all means, its that good
Slice up half an onion
Brown up the meat. You could skip this part but I really think it makes the meat taste better
ya...there we go
then gracefully dump the meat onto the pretty little onions in the crock pot
Then dump the whole rootbeer in. Cover and let cook until falling apart (3 hours on high 6 on low)
When the meat is about done I like to make my coleslaw. Mind you I usually forget until the last minute and pull a OH SH!T I FORGOT THE COLESLAW!!!!! No biggie!!!

1/2 package coleslaw mix
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 - 1 TB
1 TB Rice Vinegar
really that is how easy it is. Just Mix the Mayo with the vinegar and sugar. Give it a taste. I usually like mine on the sweet side.

Add the Coleslaw cabbage mix. I know you think it wont be enough sauce but I promise it will

Mix well and chill....if you remembered to make it early enough
Ok so our roast is cooked

Take the meat out
Shred with two forks. Protect from hungry husbands (that is why you use two forks)
Dump out the cooking liquiq. I saved some in case I needed it (if it was dry)
Add the bbq sauce, and be generous
I like to pile on toasted buns
