Servings 6


  • 2.5 pounds pork shoulder cut in half
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tbsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 can A&W root beer


  • Mix together the chili powder, brown sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, pepper and salt. Rub it all over the meat. **Consider doing the rub the night before to really enhance the flavors of the meat, but if you can't do that, adding the rub right before putting in the crockpot works too!
  • After placing the pork in crockpot, next add root beer to the crock pot.
  • Let it cook on low for 7-8 hours. Once it starts to break apart, you'll know it's done!


This pork is served so nicely as pork tacos! It can also be placed atop white rice or served inside Hawaiian sweet rolls. The kids absolutely devour it!

In Christ,

Heather Johnson

    This is so good! I think the key is the A&W root beer! Makes the meat so flavorful and does not dry out! Delicious! Just made this tonight!
