Slow Cooker Rum & Coke Pork Sandwiches
These really should just be called “Heaven On A Bun” unless you’re a vegetarian. Pork shoulder, simmered for hours in rum and coke is fall-off-the-bone tender. Feel free to top this deliciousness with a scoop of your favorite slaw.
1 Large Onion (Peeled & Cut Into Chunks)
5 Pound Pork Shoulder
1/2 Cup Rum
1 1/2 Cups Cola Soda
1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
1 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper
In medium-size bowl combine rum and soda.
Rub pork all over with kosher salt and pepper.
Place onion chunks in bottom of slow cooker. Place pork shoulder on top of onion. Pour rum and soda mixture over pork.
Cook on high heat for 4 hours. Reduce heat to low and cook another 5 hours. You will want meat to fall off the bone and shreds easily when you poke it with a fork.
Remove bone and any pieces of fat. Gently stir pork until begins to fall apart. Drain pork, discard onion chunks, and serve on buns.
