Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork Sandwiches

This is an incredibly flavorful pulled pork recipe  that uses, you guessed it, Dr. Pepper. It takes all of about 5 minutes to put all of the ingredients into your slow cooker and then you pretty much forget about it until dinner time ; ) It doesn’t get much easier. If you don’t happen to have a slow cooker you could also make this in the oven just as easily.
I also love how budget-friendly this recipe is. If you’re making it just for your family you can use the extras to make one to two additional meals. I’ll be sharing my recipe for pulled pork tacos with you shortly.

It’s also perfect for upcoming get-togethers like Memorial Day, Fourth of July, or Labor Day when you’re feeding a crowd! Who doesn’t like a bbq sandwich, right!
