Pulled Pork Sandwiches

I don't share recipes very often because I don't consider myself much of a cook - but this one was quite the hit in our house this week and it was really easy (because the crock pot does most of the work), so I thought I would share:

Prep Time: 15 min Cook Time: 7-10 hours

3 lbs Country style pork ribs (should be boneless)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
3 tablespoons liquid smoke
2 cloves garlic, chopped (I used the chopped garlic in a jar)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cola (Pepsi!!!)
1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce (we used Honey BBQ sauce and it was very good)
Sandwich rolls of your choice

1. Spray inside of Crock Pot with cooking spray
2. Mix brown sugar, pepper, liquid smoke, garlic and salt; rub mixture into ribs (I just brushed it on)
3. Put ribs in slow cooker. Pour soda over ribs.
4. Cover and cook on low heat setting 8-9 hours (I never remember to put it in early enough so I cook on high for bout 5-6 hours (plus I prefer to cook everything on high!!). This time I actually cooked them at night and reheated for dinner the next day - since I kept forgetting to put it in in the morning) :)
5. After 8-9 hours Remove ribs from slow cooker. Drain and discard liquid.
6. At this point the ribs should be practically falling apart. (optional step - take out any pieces of fat you see). Return them to the slow cooker and add Barbecue sauce. Stir thoroughly until all the pork is shredded. Cook on low for 1 hour.
7. Add shredded pork to sandwich rolls (we used sour french)

Makes about 6-8 sandwiches

Yum!!! We have been eating these for lunch and dinner the last few days.

We have a similar recipe and love them. We like to use Hawaiian rolls to make sliders.

I'm gonna have to try that one. I just did a new BBQ pork recipe in our crock pot last week and it was ok, but the sauce seemed to be missing something...maybe it needed pepsi (or coke in my case!). Thanks for sharing!
