Root beer goes good with pork.  I slow cook (crock pot) tenderloins this way for good pulled pork - one bottle of IBC (or your favorite) and two pork tenderloins.  Toss in the loins, pour in the root beer, set the pot on low and go to work.  When you come back, drain off the liquid, then treat it as regular pulled pork (add sauce, seasoning, etc.).

Why add sugar? The root beer should have more than enough.

I want all the ham.

I'd definitely try it, but my wife would mutiny if I used root beer. I do have a cookbook with a Coca Cola glazed ham hock recipe I've meaning to try though.

I prefer sea salted rum ham myself.

Root beer also goes well with boiled crawfish.

I make a glaze from Cheerwine soda and a sweet red wine, equal parts reduced to at least half. My guests love it.

My daughter does something very close to that (could be Dr Pepper) with a pork shoulder and as I recall it was most tasty.

Why tenderloin? I'd go for something cheaper with more fat and connective tissue if you're going to toss it in a crock pot.

In my experience, two reasons:

1) Those vacuum sealed tenderloins are almost always on sale at a lower per lb rate than pork butt.

2) It's rare I see pork butt cuts that weigh less than 8-9 lbs, which is a pain in the ass to deal with if I just want to quickly throw something together to slow cook while I'm doing other shiat.

All the mmmmmmms. I've made crock pot barbecue many times with root beer, Coke or Dr Pepper.

It's glaze; needs lots of sugar so you're not trying to cook with a ham sitting in a puddle of root beer.

I'd like to try this with Faygo Rock and Rye. It's hard to describe the flavor; kind of a cherry cream soda.

Look for boneless country ribs.

Even bone-in country style pork ribs are good for slow cooking. I grill with those often and they do well in a pork and sauerkraut dish too.

Cut into 1.5-2" 'steaks' and generously salt them the day before. Can sear those and slow cook, or just grill/pan fry them like chops. Problem solved.

Without the dry brine, I agree--they usually kinda suck.

Oh, I'd say they're even better, but some people don't like to deal with the bones.

It's glaze; needs lots of sugar so you're not trying to cook with a ham sitting in a puddle of root beer.


Couldn't you just substitute a fraction of that amount in cornstarch?

Another great crock pot recipe is:

1 bone in ham that will fit in the pot.
1 2L of Coca-Cola.
1 large white onion.

Quarter onion. Add all ingredients to pot. Add water to cover and attempt to stir. Cook slow based on how much time you have (crock pots are.... variable).

cyberspacedout: Why add sugar? The root beer should have more than enough.


If you don't add sugar, root beer or Coke, it isn't sweet. More savory. Especially if you use a standard ham or salted ham. Spiral cuts are never to be used by anyone who knows even rudimentary cooking.

Sure, long as you don't mind your ham tasting like it was glazed with spackle.

It never cooks correctly. Souvide through broiling, it always turns out worse than a non-spiral cut. Now, if you want lunch meat, they are great. Served hot? No.
