{I like it better than Cafe Rio} Slow Cooker Sweet Pork

Today I have another delicious recipe for you. This week I haven't cooked anything but new recipes, and this was one of them. If you like Cafe Rio pork, you'll like this. And if you don't like Cafe Rio pork, you will still love this recipe. {I do not really like the Cafe Rio pork, because it's too sweet for my taste, but I LOVE this}. Give it a try. You can't beat another slow cooker easy recipe.

Slow Cooker Sweet Pork
adapted from The Sisters Dish

3-4 pound pork loin roast
2 liter bottle Coke
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. water
garlic salt
20 oz. can mild red enchilada sauce
4 oz. can chopped green chilies
2 T. brown sugar

At least two hours before cooking (or even overnight) put the pork loin roast in a large ziploc bag. Mix together 1/2 cup brown sugar, and about 2-3 cups of the Coke. Pour over the roast and let it marinate.

After marinading, pour off the liquid and put the pork into your slow cooker. Sprinkle it liberally with garlic salt. Add 1/3 cup water and 2/3 cup Coke. Cook on low for 7-8 hours.

Remove roast from slow cooker and drain off the liquid. Using two forks, shred the pork. Put shredded pork back into the slow cooker and stir in 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, the green chilies, and most of the can of enchilada sauce. Stir in up to another 1/2  cup of Coke to make the pork the consistency you like. You don't want it too saucy. Continue to cook for another 1-2 hours on low. Serve in tortillas as pork tacos, or roll up into burritos, or make your own Cafe Rio sweet pork salad. Delicious!
