“This kid-friendly recipe is from Erika Waz of Tummy Treasure and Kids Cuisine. Erika professed her surprise and delight at how this meal turned out, but says it is a touch on the sweet side. To adjust, she suggests using just a bit less cola, or a brand that isn't quite as sweet from the get go. If you are seeking to keep the recipe gluten-free, nut-free, and/or soy-free, choose your ingredients accordingly since some are pre-made foods.”

  1. Arrange beef in a 3 1/2 to 4 quart slow cooker. Add all the remaining ingredients, except buns. Mix well.
  2. Cover. Cook on high setting for 5 to 6 hours.
  3. About 30 minutes before serving, shred the beef with 2 forks - remove it from the pot if needed to do this, then slide it back into the juices.
  4. With a slotted spoon, spoon about 1/3 cup beef mixture into each bun. Mixture can be kept warm for several hours on low setting.
