Rootbeer Pulled Pork

Costco had their large pork loins on sale this week.  I purchased two.  One went in the freezer and the other went into this pulled pork recipe.  This recipe is scaled down to use half a large pork loin about 1.5 kg.
Rootbeer Pulled Pork
1/2 half a large Costco pork loin- about 1.5 kg
1 can Rootbeer
2 tbsp butter, lard or oil
1 cup ketchup
1 tbsp garlic, minced ( I use the kind in the jar from Costco)
1/4 cu p Worcerstershire Sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
Cut slits into one side of pork loin.  Place in slowcooker slit side up.  Put the butter, lard or oil into the slits.  Poir one can rootbeer over pork – cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours until pork is well cooked and shredds easily.  Drain, reserving all the juice for the barbeque sauce.
In heavy sauce pan place the reserved pork juice.  Add the ketchup, garlice, Worcestershire Sauce and brown sugar. Stir well.  Simmer, stirring occassionally until sauce is reduced and is thickened.  Pour over shredded pork – mix until coated.
*I add the lard or butter to the pork loin because it is very lean .
