Every day I’m more in love with my new slow cooker. I’ve had a simple cheap round crock pot for as long as I can remember, and last year I added a stainless steel All-Clad Crock-pot my Christmas wish list. Santa obliged and I’ve been using my slow cooker more and more. I love the fact that the insert is stove top friendly. That means I can sear and slow cook all in the same pot. Fantastic if you ask me. I’ve included an affiliate link for your shopping convenience.
My latest adventure found me pouring Dr. Pepper on a pork roast. I’ve seen soda pop meat recipes everywhere but had never tried one. Coca-cola Fried Chicken has me intrigued, as does Root Beer Carmelized Short Ribs. Whoever invented this idea deserves a medal. I’m always interested in the “whys” and I’ve read that many mainstream sodas contain a type of acid that can tenderize steak and chicken. And that’s not to mention the caramelized and unique flavor they bring.
Serve these sliders with this Loaded Baked Potato Salad. Mayo, sour cream, bacon and cheddar cheese…for a WOW meal.
- 5 pound pork shoulder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 3 cups Dr Pepper
- 3 cups Stubbs BBQ Sauce
- 24 slider buns
- 24 slices pickle
Combine spices in a small bowl, mix well. Rub spice mix into pork and place in crockpot. Pour Dr. Pepper over pork. Cook on low 5-7 hours, until pork is tender and pulls apart easily.
Drain completely, shred pork using 2 forks, add 2 cups barbecue sauce and cook on low for one hour. Serve on slider buns with a pickle slice and more of the remaining 1 cup barbecue sauce.
