Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches
  • 1 can 355 ml cola (pepsi, coca cola, etc)
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 large onions , sliced
  • 1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce.
  • 5-6 lb pork shoulder , or pork loin
  1. Mix the spices together in a small dish.
  2. Place the pork roast in the slow cooker. Pour the cola overtop of the roast. Sprinkle the spice mix overtop of the roast, coating the outside of the roast as much as possible.
  3. Add the sliced onions to the slow cooker. Cook the roast for 4 hours on high, or 6-8 hours on low.
  4. 20 minutes before you’re ready to serve remove the roast from the slow cooker and remove any large pieces of fat. Shred the rest of the roast with 2 forks.
  5. Add the bottle of BBQ sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray’s, its our family’s favorite) to the liquid in the slow cooker and return the shredded meat to the slow cooker. Stir the meat so it’s completely coated in sauce.
  6. Toast your buns if you wish and spoon the shredded pork onto the buns. Top with coleslaw if you like and serve.
