Preparing simple family meals is one of the many goals that I try to juggle as a working mom. As I ask friends for dinner ideas and look around the internet, I’m reminded that the slow cooker can be a great kitchen tool. I have a personal goal of learning more delicious slow cooker meals.
My go-to slow cooker meal is making BBQ Pulled Pork with a pork shoulder and a can of pop.
Step 1 – Purchase the biggest pork shoulder roast that will fit in your slow cooker.
Step 2 – Add a can of pop, soda or Coke, depending where you are cooking. My favorites are cherry flavored pop or root beer.
Step 3 – Cover and turn on low for 10 – 12 hours OR turn on high for 6 – 8 hours.
Step 4 – Drain extra liquid.
Step 5 – Use two forks to shred the pork.
Step 6 – Add a small bottle (or your preferred amount) of barbecue sauce.
Step 7 – Freeze any extra for a super easy meal later on!
