Sharing is caring!

Only 3 ingredients are needed for this super easy but delicious slow cooker meal: a Boston Butt, a bottle of barbecue sauce, and a can of Coke. That’s all.

Put these 3 ingredients in your crockpot in the morning and at the end of the day you have tender pulled barbecue pork that can be utilized in numerous ways for easy weeknight meals. It’s as easy as 1-2-3. Literally!

My favorite way to serve 3-Ingredient Crockpot Pork is on a bun with some creamy, sweet slaw. Delicious!

You should get 8 servings or so of pulled pork, so you’ll most likely have plenty left over for a second meal. Leftovers will keep in the refrigerator for at least 3 days.

Use your favorite bottle of barbecue sauce and you can use Dr. Pepper or even root beer instead of coke.

Whichever you choose, this is a delightful meal for a busy December day! Leaves you more time for shopping and baking cookies. 🙂

Note: as with any crockpot pork, the sauce tends to get a little watery. If you like lots of thick barbecue sauce on your pork, have an extra jar of barbecue sauce on hand and add some just before serving.

  3. Yum, can’t wait til I get to take all of our wedding presents (my crockpot being one of them) out of my mother-in-law’s basement and put them in our new house! Just a few months to go… This sounds great 🙂

  4. We love pulled pork! And I’ve loved putting my slow cooker to use more lately! I have got to try this – it cannot get better or easier than 3-ingredients. This totally frees up time for more cookie- making. ; ) Thank you!
