  • 3 mini cans of Coca-Cola or 2 regular sized cans ~24 oz Coca-Cola
  • 1 large white onion
  • 4 lbs pork shoulder
  • 2 tbs garlic powder
  • 2 tbs salt
  • 1 ½ tbs pepper
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • 12 Cheddar Cheese Slices
  • 2 Dozen Hawaiian Rolls
  • BBQ sauce


  • Slice your onion and place in the bottom of a medium sized crock pot. (1 white onion)
  • Rub the pork shoulder with all the seasoning then place on top of the onions in the crockpot. (4lbs pork shoulder, 2 tbs garlic powder, 2 tbs salt, 1 ½ tbs pepper, 2 tbs brown sugar)
  • Pour the Coca-Cola over the pulled pork*.
  • Cook on low for ~8hrs or on medium/high for 4-6hrs**.
  • When done cooking shred the pork. If the pork is really fatty you can remove the large chunks of fat.
  • After the pork is shredded, I like to add a little bit of BBQ sauce to the pork as well as some left-over juice from the crock pot. This adds more flavor and more juiciness.
  • Build your sliders with cheese, onions, BBQ sauce, and the pulled pork.
  • Enjoy!


Recipe Notes
*The Coca-Cola® acts as an acid and a sweetener to help break down the tougher parts of the pork shoulder and make it juicy and delicious.
**The lower temperature and slower cooking method will produce more tender pulled pork. That being said the quick 4hr cook time still results in delicious pulled pork. I find when I cook it longer it falls apart/shreds more easily.
