Jack and Coke Slow Cooked Pulled Beef


  • 3 lb. beef roast 
  • 12 ounces of cola (not diet, we used "Mexican Coke" with cane sugar) 
  • 1/2 cup of Jack Daniels (or bourbon of your choice) 
  • 1/2 tablespoon chili powder Diced Jalapenos (optional- for spice and taste) 
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • One 16-18 oz. bottle of barbeque sauce 


  1. Cut beef roast into large chunks (will make shredding easier) 
  2. Pour cola, bourbon, chili powder, and diced jalapenos in slow cooker and stir 
  3. Add beef roast chunks to slow cooker 
  4. Cook on low for 8 hours 
  5. Remove beef from crock pot and let sit until cool enough to handle 
  6. Pour Liquid from crock pot into pot/saucier. Add bottle of BBQ sauce, salt, and pepper. Reduce to desired thickness (can skip this if you prefer thinner sauce) 
  7. Shred beef and add back to crock pot 
  8. Pour reduced liquid back into crock pot with beef. Stir. Cook for one more hour on low. 
  9. Serve on soft roll/bun with cole slaw (also great with baked beans)
