Cola Pulled Beef (or Chicken or Pork)

Bourbon BBQ SauceRecently, I was lucky enough to be given a jar of Bourbon BBQ Sauce from Tall Guy and a Grill Catering, on the condition that I make something tasty and post a review here. I couldn’t think of a better recipe to try it out than cola pulled beef.

I’ll admit, I strayed from the recipe below ever-so-slightly. Instead of cola, I used root beer. In the past, I’ve also made this using Dr. Pepper, Cherry Dr. Pepper, and Cherry Cola. That said, as long as you don’t use a diet soda, you can’t go wrong (trust me, you don’t want to use a diet soda).

Tall Guy’s Bourbon BBQ Sauce is great. Tangy, sweet, a hint of bourbon, and a slight kick. Not only was it perfect for this recipe, but it would go great on a burger, ribs, grilled chicken, or really anything else that you might want to use BBQ sauce on. I’m glad this recipe only used about a third of the bottle so that I can keep enjoying it with different meals.

Ingredients
  • 3 lbs Chuck Roast Pork roasts or boneless skinless chicken breasts also work.
  • 20 oz Cola Any non-diet soda. Cherry Dr. Pepper being my favorite.
  • 6 oz BBQ Sauce Use your favorite or make your own.
Servings: people
Instructions
  1. Put the roast in the crock pot.
    (Optional: Trim the fat off first for a slightly healthier meal)
  2. Take a swig of the soda, then pour the rest over the roast.
  3. Turn the crock pot on high for 4-6 hours.
  4. Take the roast out of the slow cooker and place it on a large cutting board. Pull it apart completely.
  5. Pour the juices left in the slow cooker through a metal strainer in to a bowl. Discard what's left in the strainer, save the juices.
  6. Put the pulled beef back in to the slow cooker.
  7. Slowly pour the juices back in until it is as moist as you desire. I usually end up using about half.
  8. Mix in the BBQ sauce to taste. About 1/3 - 1/2 of a jar is usually enough.
  9. Set your slow cooker to warm until everything is heated through again.
  10. Serve on buns, texas toast, or just eat it with a fork.
