Dr. Pepper Pork

The slow-cooker is my favorite way to cook on school nights.  We have been collecting crock pot meals and sharing them with you.  Dr. Pepper Pork is a favorite at my house.

I recently had the honor of being invited to visit pig farms with the Animal Agriculture Alliance. I learned lots of things, but what I mostly learned was that pork is a great protein that is good for your family and safe to eat! If you’ve never tried combining soda with your pork, you totally should.

3 Ingredient Pork Slow Cooker Dinner

  • 1 Can of Dr. Pepper
  • 1 Packet of Onion Soup Mix
  • 2-3 Pounds of Pork Roast

Slow Cooker Recipe

Cut the Pork into sections so that it will fit into your crock pot.  We used a 2 Quart Crock pot to fit our roast.

Flip the pork pieces in the onion soup mix till they are coated.  Layer the chunks into the crock pot.  Pour the Dr. Pepper over the pork till it is nearly covered in your cooker.

Cook on high for 4-5 hours.  We aren’t exact with our cooking times – the benefits of cooking in a crockpot!

the best pork bbq ever made with the crock pot

After your pork has been cooked, drain the liquid, shred the meat and add barbecue sauce (if you want – we didn’t, not this time).

This meal took 15 min to make (including dishwashing) and I promise, your kids will ask for seconds!

Like the bread?  We love eating our BBQ inside homemade rolls.  This bread recipe is super easy!
