This Slow Cooker Dr Pepper Pulled Pork is super easy , full of flavor and the perfect way to feed a crowd. This is perfect served on a bun with a little coleslaw either on the side or right on top.  Once the pork is shredded  it can be place back in the slow cooker to be kept warm. This is the perfect meal to make for parties , family gatherings or even game day. I normally have the pork in the warm set out some buns , coleslaw , pickles and chips.

Notes

For this recipe I used a pork loin but I have also used the more tradition pork butt or shoulder roast. I honestly got what was on sale and I always recommend this. 
This is fantastic on a bun with a little coleslaw. Check out my simple sugar free coleslaw.
