Slow Cooked Barbecue Pork Sandwiches

Learning to cook is on our essential check-list for raising children. Not visiting the ER more than about twice a year is also on there. It's always interesting trying to come up with cooking lessons that fit both those bills.
This is what K. made for Sunday dinner. You can use a 3-5 lb. pork roast like my mom does, or make a smaller batch with 2 pork chops like we did.

Step 1
Place pork (defrosted, if necessary) in the slow cooker.
Pour in enough root beer to cover the pork.
Add 1-2 tsp. garlic salt.
Cook on low for 8-10 hours.

Step 2
Move the pork to a plate.
Shred using two forks.
 Transfer to a bowl.
Add honey hickory barbecue sauce.

Step 3
Fill rolls. Serve with a fruit or veggie
and leftover root beer.

The verdict: This recipe is great for entry level cooks. The most difficult parts were defrosting the pork and stirring in the barbecue sauce. Not all the kids loved it, but I think it's a keeper anyway.
