Simple, easy and tasty is our dish today. One does not always have 15 hours to smoke pork shoulder to create pulled pork. There is so much good daytime T.V. such as: “The View”, ‘Maury’, ‘Judge Judy’ and of course my favorite ‘Jerry Springer’ (I wonder if Jerry has received my letter to be on the show?) that an easy pulled pork recipe was welcome and necessary. The ingredient list is small as the directions. A pork shoulder, can of coke, a jar of salsa and some barbeque sauce is all she wrote.
The pork shoulder is trimmed of excess fat. It is placed in a crock pot with the can of coke poured over the top and set on high. Four hours later the pork is removed. Remove all the liquid from the pot. Shred the pork with a fork and place back into crock pot. Then add salsa and barbeque sauce to cook for 1 more hour. I told you this was easy. We served ours juicy and tender pork over rice and accompanied it with home made Cole slaw. We were impressed how simple, easy and tasty this pork turned out. No way will it replace pork smoked low and slow but with our busy daytime hours this was a welcome dish.
