Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork

I cannot get enough pulled pork, especially in the summer time. The more vinegar, the better. I have seen this type of recipe floating around the internet for awhile and I have always been intrigued by it.  I am a big fan of my usual pulled pork recipe, but I liked this one even more.  It tasted nothing like Dr. Pepper, but the meat was so tender and flavorful.  It had a really nice kick from the cayenne pepper.  I will try it next time with more vinegar, but I was unsure how it would react with the Dr. Pepper for my first go round.
Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork
makes enough for 8 to 10 sandwiches

1.5 to 2 pound pork roast
¼ onion, minced
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
1 twelve ounce can Dr. Pepper

Place pork roast, fat side up and onion in a slow cooker. Add the pepper, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and vinegar. Pour the can of Dr. Pepper over top of the pork. Cook on low for 8 hours, flipping over once halfway through. Shred the pork with two forks, cook for an additional 30 minutes. Serve with barbecue sauce and pickles on fresh rolls.

Dr. Pepper grosses me out, so I'm trying it with Maine Root Ginger Brew. I'll let you know how it turns out.

I tried it, but I had a seven-pound roast. I just doubled the recipe, but only used a small fraction of the cayenne called for (got some sensitive tummies here). It was wonderful! Tender, flavorful--doesn't taste anything like Dr Pepper at all. My family and friends ate themselves senseless at the Memorial Day BBQ!

A friend of mine sent me this link. We had it on Memorial Day and my husband said it was better than our favorite BBQ joint!! We'll be having it again, today for Father's Day.
Thanks so much!!!
