3 Ingredient Pulled Pork…
Easy to make and super yummy! No one would ever know it was made in a crockpot 😉
This pulled pork recipe is on rotation in our house at least twice a month! I usually make double this recipe and freeze it in smaller batches so I don’t actually have to spend 8 hours waiting on it to cook. This pulled pork freezes wonderfully and it gets better the longer you leave it in the freezer, or at least I think so.
Every time I make this for company, I get so many compliments. Of course, I put it in a nice serving bowl and don’t tell a soul it was made in a crockpot 😉 I don’t think they would mind, but I can’t let them know my secret! This recipe really is the perfect thing to make if you’re having company… It can be made in the crockpot, ahead of time, and you don’t have to touch it for 8 hours. It also makes quite a bit of food, so you can feed a crowd for cheap, even if you have to double or triple the recipe.
To make this delicious pulled pork, you need to know the 3 “secret” miracle ingredients…. pork (hint’s the name), BBQ sauce, and COKE! If you don’t know, I have a bit of an obsession with Coca-Cola. It’s no secret, I could drink Coke for breakfast, lunch, and dinner if it were acceptable. I wish it had the same nutritional value as water…… but it doesn’t. If you are a true Coke lover, you know the difference between Coca-Cola & Pepsi (arch nemesis). ANYWAYS….. Coke is the real secret to making this pulled pork so flavorful and tender!
First, you need to start off with a crockpot liner, duh! Easy cleanup and a true life changer. I also have a bit of an obsession with crockpot liners too… I tend to hoard them. It’s all about being prepared, right? Then place the pork in the crockpot and pour 1 can of Coke over it.
Next, you need to add the BBQ sauce. All I had in the pantry was a 40 ounce bottle, so I used about half. If you buy the normal 18 ounce bottle, just pour the whole thing in.
Now just let that beauty sit there and cook on low for 8 hours. No need to lift one finger until it’s done cooking. If that isn’t the easiest dinner, I don’t know what is!
Once it’s done cooking, just shred it in the crockpot with 2 forks and serve it up.
Would you just look at that glorious sight… and yes, that is sour cream on top. I swear, this is “don’t judge a book by it’s cover” at it’s finest! You wouldn’t think garlic bread, pulled pork, and sour cream go together, BUT THEY DO! Once you take a bite, you’ll realize it’s a marriage made in heaven.
Okay, so we ALWAYS eat our pulled pork on garlic bread. ALWAYS. It’s pretty much against the law to eat it any other way in our house, unless you want to put the pulled pork on nachos, that’s always allowed.
The reason behind the garlic bread you ask?
Well, we go to Lake Cumberland in Kentucky pretty much every other week during the summer, and have been forever. There’s a restaurant in Somerset, KY called Sonny’s BBQ, and it’s the bomb. Every time we go, I get the ribs. They’re amazing, fall off the bone ribs, and I’m just plain obsessed with them. My husband, on the other hand, gets the pulled pork. They serve theirs with big pieces of garlic toast, and we fell in love from the moment we tried it this way. So now we just won’t eat it any other way. It really feels like a sin to put pulled pork on just a pain bun now.
Note for recipe:
The leftovers freeze AWESOME!
