main dishes

Ahhhhh pulled pork. It is such a reminder of Fall in Alabama where we literally devoured mounds pulled pork for years. This particular recipe is so easy, and the Dr. Pepper adds the perfect amount of sweetnees! Just add it to your slow cooker along with an onion and some spices and you’re basically done! We would slow cook a pork roast on Sundays and have sandwiches throughout the week. We  especially love pulled pork on mini rolls. Add your favorite slaw and you have a great meal or an afternoon snack!

  1. Trim the roast of any large pieces of fat and rub with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Place in slow cooker. Pour one bottle of dr pepper over roast. Cook on low for 7 hours, flipping roast every hour. Add more Dr. Pepper if needed to ensure roast is submerged. After 7 hours, remove roast and shred.
