Mmmmmm……BBQ Pulled Pork. Well, Coca-cola BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich that is. A few weeks ago I was able to go down to Camp Lejeune to visit family, and while we were down there Crystal made pulled pork BBQ sandwiches for dinner one night. They were so good and I knew I needed to make them at home for Big Bear. Super simple, and this barely takes any work because the crockpot does it all.
- 4 tablespoons canola oil
- 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
- 6 cups ketchup
- 2 cups orange juice
- 1 cup molasses
- 1 cup Coca-Cola
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons liquid smoke
- 2 teaspoons garlic salt
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1 Pork Butt (Pork Shoulder)
- 1 Can Coca-cola (or any dark soda)
- 5-6 cups of BBQ sauce (enough to cover the pork in the crock-pot)(Don’t forget buns, if you want to have Pulled Pork Sandwiches)
Heat a pot over medium-high heat and add canola oil and minced garlic.Cook and stir until garlic is starts to brown.
Remove the pan from the heat.
Add ketchup, orange juice, Coca-Cola and molasses.
Add in the brown sugar, liquid smoke, garlic salt, and paprika . Whisk to combine.
For the Pulled Pork:
In a Crock-Pot (slow-cooker), stir together the BBQ sauce and cola. Set the crock-pot onto low. Add Pork. Press down so that the pork is completely covered in the sauce.
Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours. *test the pork by using a fork to shred some of the pork, if it shreds easily, it’s ready* Once the pork is done, remove it from the crock-pot and shred with a fork.
