Pulled Pork with Apple and Dr. Pepper


  • Pork Shoulder
  • Dr. Pepper 12 oz
  • Apple juice 8 oz
  • ΒΌ cup light brown sugar
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • Add the pork, Dr. Pepper, and apple juice to a slow cooker. Cook until the meat begins to fall apart. Mine cooked on high for three hours. Remove the meat from the cooker and allow to rest until it is cool enough to pull. Skim any fat off the juice in the slow cooker. Pour the remaining juices into a medium saucepan. Add the brown sugar, salt and pepper and simmer until thickened. Pull the pork into shreds. Pour the thickened sauce over it. Serve on toasted rolls with condiments of your choice. If you don't like sweet pulled pork just omit the brown sugar.
