Pulled Pork

Pulled Pork

I was in a car accident on the way to work on Wednesday. After DH picked me up and we finished calling the insurance company and taking my car in for weeks of repairs, we knew that an easy brainless dinner was in store for that night. Since it was still early, we decided that we had enough time to put some pulled pork in the crock pot and recover from the day.

Pulled Pork
What’s Cooking boards on thenest.com.


2-4 lbs pork butt roast (or tenderloin)
1 onion, sliced
1-2 cans of root bear or some other cola-ish soda (we have used Dr. Pepper before)
1 bottle of your favorite bbq sauce (we used KFC Masterpiece Sweet and Tangy in hopes of recreating our favorite Firestone’s “Pig Sandwich” pulled pork)


  1. Put pork in the crock put. Add some salt and pepper, put onions on top, and pour soda into the crock pot. Soda should just about cover the pork.
  2. Cook on low for 6-7 hours. The longer and the lower the temperature, the better.
  3. When pork is falling apart, drain the liquid out of the crock pot and shred the pork with two forks on a cutting board.
  4. Put the shredded pork back into the crock pot. Add the bbq sauce and mix well. Let cook on low for another hour.
  5. Serve on toasted buns and enjoy!

One of our favorites. A dinner, that with planning ahead of time, is easy, quick, and doesn’t require much.

    Oh, yum! I still remember the fantastic pig sandwich we had at Firestone when Will & I drove back up to SJ after your wedding (well, after the SD trip after your wedding *g*). Mmm, porky goodness. You know it’s good when I’m salivating at the thought, all this time later and from all the way over here!
