Root Beer BBQ Pork Sliders

This sounds pretty crazy, doesn’t it? But it actually tastes deelicious!

My friend Janice told me that she made a recipe for BBQ pork with root beer and that she absolutely loved it, so I knew I had to try it out too :)

I don’t like root beer at all but Chris absolutely loves it. I decided to try it out for his sake.

And well it turned out pretty awesome!

You slow cook the pork with the root beer for about 6-7 hrs and the pork turns out extremely tender, slightly sweet, full of flavor – just melt in your mouth delicious!

And the entire day you’re cooking it, your house will smell so enticing! I was out shopping that day with a friend, but Chris was suffering at home all day.

The second I got home, my mouth started watering and he was ready to devour it!

And well the waiting was well worth it, it was exquisite!

It was extremely easy to make, just throw a few ingredients in the crock pot and call it a day!

Root Beer BBQ Pork Sliders

Makes 12 sliders


  • 2 to 2 1/2 lb pork tenderloin
  • 2 cup BBQ sauce, divided use
  • 1 (6oz) can tomato paste
  • 1 (12oz) can root beer
  • 1 tsp Worceshire sauce
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • slider buns and provolone cheese for serving


In your slow cooker/crockpot, add the pork. In a bowl, combine 1 cup of BBQ, tomato paste, root beer, Worceshire, liquid smoke, sugar, salt and garlic powder. Top the pork with the root beer/bbq mixture. Cook on low for 6-7hrs or until the pork is fork tender. Transfer the pork to a plate and shred with two forks. Discard the root beer liquid, add the shredded pork back to the slow cooker and top with the remaining 1 cup of BBQ sauce. Cook on high for 10 mins or until the BBQ sauce gets warmed up. Serve with slider buns and provolone cheese.
