Classic Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Recipe

Monday’s are busy in our home. From my morning routine. With all the hustle and bustle, dinners needs to planned and in the works several hours ahead of time. Procrastination is my enemy. If I do not have something in the slow cooker, we will wind up getting hot n ready pizza. I remembered at noon I hadn’t figured out dinner! My slow cooker is a staple on my counter top, so at least that was one less step I had to take. I decided on chicken noodle soup. That was until I realized I had no carrots, celery, and only half the chicken needed. I quickly realized pulled pork was the best option.

Thankfully,  my freezer is pretty full of pork chops and boneless ribs. I found 2 small boneless pork steaks and a bag of 4 pork chops. Only down side, those were placed in the freezer several month ago and had a but of freezer burn. That’s the one major benefit to this amazing and simple recipe. You can use any cut of pork, fresh, frozen, or freezer burnt! So grab your ingredients and have an amazing meal tomorrow night!

Classic Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Recipe


  • 1/2-2 lbs boneless pork (pork butts, chops, etc)
  • 1 Can Dr. Pepper
  • BBQ Sauce
  • Buns


In your slow cooker, put all the uncooked pork in the pot. Slowly pour one can of Dr. Pepper into the pot. Now, put lid on and set the slow cooler to low for 6-7 hours. Drain all the liquid off.  While in pot use bear claw shredders or two forks to shred pork. Add in BBQ and let it sit for 5 minutes. Serve the meat hot on buns of your choice. I highly recommend King Hawaiian buns. Their Flavor is sweet and complements the pork well.

*Note: The Dr. Pepper  can be substituted with any other dark soda. Root beer, Coke, Pepsi etc.
