Crock Pot Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork is a sweet and spicy pulled pork recipe made with Dr. Pepper and chipotle peppers in adobo sauce to give this pulled pork a flavorful combo of heat and sweet. I must say, last week's Hunk of Meat Monday link ups were quite inspiring. I get in this "I must grill out every single day" mode that I have been ignoring my poor crock pot most weeks. And then I saw these amazing recipes from The Rickett Chronicle, Pinke Post, and Goodeness Gracious motivating me to make Crock Pot Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork.
Crock Pot Pulled Pork recipe combines Dr. Pepper and Chipotle with brown sugar, onions, and garlic for a sweet and spicy pulled pork. Just a few ingredients to get this recipe going.
- Dr. Pepper
- brown sugar
- garlic cloves
- a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
- salt and pepper.
How to Make Crock Pot Pulled Pork
I cut the onions into ½ inch pieces and put in the bottom of the crock pot. I put the pork shoulder on top of the onions, fat side down.
And then it happened...
I decided the pork needed four or five pieces of smashed garlic.
Then I spooned a 7 ounce can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce over the pork, poured 2 ½ cups of Dr. Pepper over top and followed it up with a quarter cup of brown sugar.
Then I shredded up the pork with my salad choppers.
Turned the crock pot down to stay warm till we were ready to eat. The pork was spicy and sweet. We made sandwiches out of the pork and added some cheese and BBQ sauce to the pork.
The pulled pork sandwiches were a little bit of heaven with our Indiana sweet corn and caprese salad
