Ingredients:

1 2½- to 3-pound pork sirloin roast
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon cooking oil
2 medium onions, cut into thin wedges
1 cup root beer*
6 cloves garlic, minced

Sauce ingredients:
3 cups root beer*
1 cup tomato sauce
¼ cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons vinegar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1 dash ground cloves
1 dash allspice

8 to 10 hamburger buns, split (toasted, if desired)
Lettuce leaves and tomato slices (optional)

Directions:

1. Trim fat from meat. If necessary, cut meat to fit into a 3½- to 5-quart slow cooker. Sprinkle meat with salt and pepper; rub in. In a large non-stick skillet brown meat on all sides in hot oil. Drain off fat. Transfer meat to cooker. Add onion, the 1 cup root beer, and garlic.

2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.

3. Meanwhile, for sauce, whisk together sauce ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes or until mixture is reduced to 2 cups.

4. Transfer meat to a cutting board or serving platter. Using two forks, pull meat apart into shreds. Using a slotted spoon, transfer onion to serving platter; discard cooking juices. If desired, line buns with lettuce leaves and tomato slices. Place shredded meat and onion on rolls. Drizzle meat with some of the root beer sauce.
