Three ingredients is all you need to make this simple slow cooked Dr Pepper BBQ pulled pork.
I can’t believe that I have never shared my favorite way to make bbq pulled pork. I make this all the time. It is one of my family’s favorite meals.
It is so easy to make and only contains three ingredients. Three ingredients. That is all.
We love this on hamburger buns or bread or simply just shredded and served.
The measurements on this are just basic. You can vary it depending on the size of roast that you have. This also works with chicken or beef, although pork is our favorite.
BBQ pulled pork freezes great. I let it cool completely and freeze it in a zip top type bag. It makes a great freezer meal.
Slow Cooked Dr Pepper BBQ Pulled Pork
Slow Cooked Dr. Pepper pork is great served all by itself, on buns or breads, or baked potatoes.
- 3 pound pork roast
- 3/4 cup bbq sauce
- 12 ounces Dr. Pepper
- Place meat in slow cooker.
- In a bowl or measuring cup combine bbq sauce and Dr. Pepper. Pour over pork.
- Cook on low for 7-8 hours or until it is tender and meat is falling apart.
- Remove pork from slow cooker and shred meat using two forks or use your mixer to shred the meat.
- Pour about 1 cup of liquid from the slow cooker on shredded meat and mix well. Add some bbq sauce if desired.
- Serve as is or on buns or bread.
You can vary the roast size if you want. I use anywhere from a 3 pound to a 5 pound pork roast.

I made this and it was SO good. Easy to get on the table after work & grocery shopping. I have a question though. There were 3 cups of bbq flavored juice left over. Do you save it & use it for anything? I’m sure most people would pour it down the drain, but I hate to. The only thing I came up with was to use it as broth in a brunswick stew.
I am so glad that you enjoyed it! If I am freezing the meat I sometimes put extra of the leftover juice in it to keep it moist, but I have never actually done anything else with it. It would probably work though in something like a stew or meat dish that worked with the bbq flavor. I might have to think about that and what I could do with the leftover juice. It is a good idea to find a use for it.
