Dr Pepper Pulled Pork

Pulled Pork is a staple recipe to have on hand. I do however like to have several options just to have variety like this Dr Pepper Pulled Pork version.

This is a variation of a pulled pork recipe I have made before using root beer.  You really do get a different result by using Dr. Pepper instead of the root beer. It has a different flavor but is equally tasty!

This recipe is as easy as placing the pork roast in the crock pot along with some Dr. Pepper. Then you let it cook on low for 6-8 hours. Once it is finished cooking, you shred the meat and mix in some bbq sauce. It’s that easy. I love it when my crock pot and do most of the work for me.

The amount of bbq sauce used is up to you. You can use anywhere from 1/3 a cup to one full cup. Just depends on how saucy you want it. This is a great summer meal. Serve it up with some potato chip and watermelon!

  1. Hello. Unfortunately, I don’t have Dr. Pepper on hand. However, I do have Coke. Would that work? Thank you in advance.
