I love a good potluck. I used to work for a company that hosted potlucks often and let me tell you there were some good cooks at that company. The most common dish brought to these potlucks was shredded pork and they were always so good.

I’ve been wanting to find the perfect pulled pork recipe, but there are so many and they all varied in what they had in it. So I decided to combine a couple and came up with this sweet and savory pulled pork. The fact that it includes Dr. Pepper (my favorite drink of all time) and is made in the slow-cooker makes it even more perfect.

Easy is the name of the game for this recipe. You can have this done in 7 steps from start to finish:

  1. Peel and chop an onion and place on the bottom of a slow-cooker.
  2. Pat your choice of spice rub onto a dry pork shoulder.
  3. Place the pork shoulder on top of the onion and pour the can of Dr. Pepper around the pork shoulder. Not over or you’ll wash off all the spice.
  4. Cook on low for 9 hours or until done.
  5. Once the pork is done, take it out and place on a plate. Dump the juice and onion out and place the pork shoulder back into the slow-cooker.
  6. Shred the pork shoulder and pour as much or as little barbecue sauce over the meat and mix.
  7. Allow the meat and sauce to come to a warm temperature. about 30 minutes and then serve.

We served these on ciabatta bread with baked beans.
