Since I had some Coke on hand, I made a BBQ sauce with the extra Coke. You can toss the pork with BBQ sauce if you like, but we prefer not to drown our pork in sauce. We just added some BBQ sauce on top of the pork and dinner was served! This recipe is perfect for Labor Day and tailgating this weekend. You can make it on Friday and just reheat the pork when you are ready.
Slow Cooker Coca-Cola Pulled Pork
- 1 3-pound boneless pork shoulder/butt
- 1 12-ounce can Coke
Place the pork in the crockpot. Pour coke over the pork. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Remove from crockpot and shred. Serve with your favorite BBQ sauce.
