Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork Sandwiches

pork sandwich

Every few months I get a craving for pulled pork. It’s one of our favorite comfort foods. This time around, I thought I would try Dr. Pepper pulled pork in my slow cooker. All you do is add a can or two of Dr. Pepper, along with a few other seasonings to your slow cooker with a Boston Butt. Then let it cook all day until it’s super tender.

After it’s done cooking, you just strain off the cooking juices and excess fat, and then mix the pulled pork with your favorite barbecue sauce and serve it on a bun. To go along with it, I made a simple coleslaw out of cabbage, carrots, red onions, a little mayo, vinegar and agave. It paired perfectly with this puled pork.
