Have made this a few times and served with mashed potatoes. Very good and makes a great next day sandwich! I makes extra sauce!!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, combine Dr Pepper, Worcestershire, vinegar, garlic, bouillon, mustard, chili powder and red pepper flakes. Save 1/2 cup of this for sauce.
  2. Place meat and onions into crockpot and pour the remaining sauce over the meat (NOT the reserved 1/2 cup sauce).
  3. Cover and cook on LOW for 10-12 hours or on HIGH for 5-6 hours; Transfer to serving platter and let 'settle' 10 min, before slicing.
  4. While the meat 'settles', in a small pan combine reserved 1/2 cup sauce, catsup and butter; Heat through; this is your 'gravy'.
  5. NOTE: never use the diet version of any soda for this recipe; the artificial sweetner breaks down badly when heated and will ruin the meal.
