Our family enjoys pulled pork several different ways. Here are a few serving suggestions:
- Serve it as pictured above on soft, warm buns. Maybe add a side of cole slaw and baked beans.
- Serve it with yellow rice and black beans.
- Set up a rice bowl bar with white rice, black beans, sour cream, shredded cheese & salsa.
Crockpot Coca-Cola Pulled Pork
Chances are you have most of these common ingredients already. You’ll need a shoulder pork roast or Boston butt (with or without bones, either is fine), onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, a can of Coke, and a bottle of barbecue sauce.
Whisk the spices together and rub all over the pork. Place it in a sprayed crockpot. Pour the can of Coke over the roast. Cover and cook on high for 5 hours or low for 10 hours.
It will be fall-off-the-bone tender at the end of the cooking time. Remove the roast from the crockpot. You may need to use a slotted spoon to get it all. Shred the meat using two forks. Discard the bones. Reserve about 1/2 cup of juices in the crockpot and discard the rest. Return shredded meat to crockpot, add reserved juices, and pour in the entire bottle of barbecue sauce. Mix well. Set to low, cover, and cook an additional 30 minutes.
Sit back, enjoy, and don’t forget to put out some extra napkins!
