Slow cooker Coca-Cola pulled pork is such an easy meal. However, it isn’t just easy, it is absolutely delicious too! Perfect for a busy weeknight, just throw all of the ingredients in your slow cooker, and go about your day! Simple as that.
Living in the south, pulled pork is a big deal. My family just loves it. There are so many different types of pulled pork and sauces, from tomato based sauce to sauces with a vinegar base, to put on the pork.
My favorite kind of pulled pork to prepare for my family is one that is super simple and doesn’t require too much effort. This recipe is great because the slow cooker does all of the work for you! Also, this can easily be made for a crowd. Having people over after work or a after a busy weekend day on the soccer or baseball field? Serve this pulled pork along with your favorite side dishes. We typically serve this slow cooker Coca-Cola pulled pork on toasted sesame buns with a side of baked beans, potato salad or chips and green beans.
For this recipe, I used Coca-Cola because it’s what we had in the house. However, I’ve used root beer before and add so much wonderful flavor too! Also, you can use whatever bbq sauce your family loves! We really like the sweet honey bbq sauce, but if you like a spicy sauce, use that! I just love recipes that are so simple to tweak to my family’s taste!
