Cola Pulled Pork


8 Servings

1 2 1/2 - 3 Lb pork shoulder roast
salt and pepper
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 medium onions, sliced
2 tbsp minced garlic
4 cups cola, divided
1 cup bottled chili sauce


1. If necessary, cut meat to fit into a 3 1/2-to 5qt slow cooker. Sprinkle meat with salt and pepper. In a large skillet cook meat in hot oil over medium-high heat until golden brown on all sides. Transfer meat and any remaining fat to the slowcooker. Add onions, 1 cup cola and the garlic. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8-10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4-5 hours.

2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan combine 3 cups cola and chili sauce. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cool another 30 minutes or until mixture is reduced to 2 cups, stirring occasionally.

3. Remove meat from slowcooker. Using a slotted spoon, transfer onions to a large bowl and discard cooking liquid. Using two forks, pull meat apart into shreds. Add shredded meat, reduced sauce and onions back into the slowcooker.

4. Heat again for another 2-3 hours on high - or heat the mixture in a large saucepan over medium-low heat on the stove for 25-30 minutes.

5. If necessary, add a few tablespoons of cola or water to keep mixture from sticking.

Serve in buns, wraps or in your favourite poutine recipe. 🙂
