What You’ll Need

  • 4 pounds boneless pork butt
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 (12-ounce) can cola
  • 1 (28-ounce) jar barbecue sauce

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

What to Do

  1. Place pork in a 6-quart slow cooker and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with onion then pour cola over meat. Cover and cook on high setting 6 to 6-1/2 hours, or until pork is very tender and falls apart easily.
  2. Remove pork to a large cutting board and shred with two forks. Using a slotted spoon, remove onion. Drain liquid from slow cooker, reserving 1 cup. Return meat to slow cooker, add reserved liquid, the barbecue sauce, and onion; mix well. Heat 20 minutes or keep on low until ready to serve.
  3. When ready to serve, in a medium bowl, combine coleslaw mix, vinegar, oil, and sugar; mix well. Spoon pork mixture evenly onto bottom of rolls, top with coleslaw and top of roll, and serve.
