Number of Servings: 8


    2 lb boneless pork sirloin roast, fat trimmed
    2 tsp olive oil
    2 medium onions, cut into thin wedges
    4 cups diet root beer
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 cup chili sauce
    1/4 tsp root beer extract
    2 tsp hot pepper sauce
    8 Healthy life hamburger buns
    Salt & pepper, to taste


1. Sprinkle meat with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat and add pork. Sear meat until brown on all sides. Transfer meat to slow cooker.

2. Add onions, 1 cup root beer and garlic. Cover and cook on LOW 8 to 10 hours.

3. To prepare sauce: In a medium saucepan, combine remaining root beer and chili sauce. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a low simmer. Cover and simmer 30 minutes or until mixture has reduced to 2 cups, stirring occasionally. Stir in root beer extract and hot pepper sauce.

3. Remove meat from slow cooker. Using a slotted spoon, transfer onions to a large bowl and discard cooking liquid. Shred pork using two forks and add to bowl with onions. Pour warmed sauce over the meat mixture and stir gently to coat. Serve immediately.
