Total time 8 hrs, 5 mins
Yield Makes 6 servings
Serve this simple-to-fix pork recipe with buns and slaw, fill a quesadilla, or spoon over hot cooked cheese grits or toasted cornbread.

Ingredients

  • 1 (3- to 4-lb.) boneless pork shoulder roast (Boston butt), trimmed
  • 1 (18-oz.) bottle barbecue sauce
  • 1 (12-oz.) can cola soft drink

How to Make It

  1. Place roast in a lightly greased 6-qt. slow cooker; pour barbecue sauce and cola over roast. Cover and cook on LOW 8 to 10 hours or until meat shreds easily with a fork.

  2. Transfer pork to a cutting board; shred with two forks, removing any large pieces of fat. Skim fat from sauce, and stir in shredded pork.

  3. Note: We tested with Cattleman's Original Barbecue Sauce.
