  • EXCELLENT!! The whole family loved it and it will now be a regular. We cooked it on high in a crock pot for six hours and it was perfect. Instead of a tenderloin we used a Boston Butt Roast. So, so yummy! - 7/18/11

  • Well, I made mine and it was really bland. I had to had more BBQ sauce, brown sugar and some ketchup before I could stomach it. Mine made 21 servings of 1/2 c each. Good. Thanks - 2/24/11

  • This was amazing! I had it with a tad bit of mayo on the new Thinwhich bread from Orwheat. Could have used a bit more barbecue sauce...I'd forgotten to go buy it and only had about 3/4 a small bottle. I may get more to mix in soon.
    Probably will make it again though! - 7/13/10

  • This is really yummy. I never thought of the root beer, and it made it so much more better. I used a spicy honey bbq sauce and it countered the rootbeer and it tasted so good! - 10/29/08

  • Sounds delicious!! I love how easy crock pot recipes can be. BTW if you lived in Wisconsin you'd take the "root" out of the root beer and add Leinie's or Bud instead :) - 10/13/08

  • I just made this and it was great! Once you add the right BBQ sauce, you can't taste the root beer at all! - 7/1/08

  • I thought this recipe was great! I could not taste the root beer at all, but it made the meat really tender. This was a super-easy week night dinner! - 5/1/08

  • Thumbs down on this recipe, the after flavor of the root beer made my stomach turn. The tenderloin with just the barbeque sauce would have been TONS better. I do not recommend this recipe! - 4/28/08
