I used one pork loin about 2lbs and one 20oz bottle of root beer. I put the pork loin in the crock pot and poured the entire bottle of root beer over it. Cook on low for 7-8 hours. The original recipe said only 6 hours but mine was not easy to shred after 6 but perfect for a couple hours longer. Once it is shredded you can pour the BBQ sauce over the whole thing but I didn't do this. I prefer to measure out the sauce as I eat it. My portions are 3 oz of pork and 1-2 tablespoons of sauce. (One serving of sauce is 2 tablespoons.)
The second thing I made was Asian slaw with wasabi dressing. Click here for the original recipe. The slaw was not as good as I would have liked. I will have to try again with a little tweaking. I used premade slaw mix instead of making my own. For this recipe I used half the bag and added some red, yellow and orange bell peppers and some green onions. I topped it with Chinese noodles that I had instead of sesame seeds and peanuts. I also halved the dressing amounts. It still made a lot of sauce. When it was all done I couldn't taste the wasabi and the sesame oil was too strong. I think if I make this again I will cut the oil even more and add more wasabi. If you try this recipe I would love to hear how it was and if you made any changes.
Maybe next I should work on my food presentation for photos. LOL
