National Sandwich Day: 3-Ingredient Cola Pulled Pork Recipe for the Slow Cooker

Ahhh. There's nothing like biting into a tender, saucy pulled pork sandwich. This easy slow-cooked pork recipe has just three ingredients. Yep, three ingredients result in a flavorful, juicy pulled pork

If you like fattier pulled pork use a pork butt, or use pork tenderloin for a leaner sandwich. This is a great recipe for family get-togethers and tailgating. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 0 minutes
Cook Time: 6 to 7 hours

Total Time: 6 to 7 hours


  • 1 pork butt or pork tenderloin (about 2 to 3 pounds)
  • 1 can cola (Coke, Dr. Pepper or root beer)
  • 1 bottle barbecue sauce
  • hamburger buns or sandwich rolls

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Put the pork into a slow cooker. Pour the cola over the top. Cover and cook on low for about 6 hours or until pork is fork tender. 
  2. Shred the pork. Add the barbecue sauce and stir. Cook another 30 minutes or until sauce is heated through. Serve on buns.
