My favorite Shredded pork!

This is similar to Cafe Rio sweet pork or Costa Vida! Make it for a crowd and they will for sure be impressed!

6 lbs Pork loin
1 can coke(not pepsi)
2 cups brown sugar
1 16 oz bottle of salsa

Cook roast in the crock-pot on high with about a cup of water. Cook for about 5 hours (less if using half a roast). Drain the water and add (mixed together) the coke, salsa and brown sugar. Pour that over the meat that you have shredded with a fork and cook for another couple of hours. If the roast is smaller, you might not need to cook as long.
This is best on your favorite tortilla with lettuce, tomatoes,black beans, rice and the tomatilla dressing (recipe to follow). Serve and Enjoy!


  1. I am really intrigued by this recipe! I love pulled pork and my husband and I were just talking about this. But coke?? :) Wow.. I can imagine the flavors with the brown sugar. When I try it I'll let you know!
    Thank you for visiting my blog today, and the lovely comment. Ciao and buon appetito! :)

  2. Thanks for stopping by to say hello- you have some fun recipes on here and I loved reading about the Peeps! I have a similar recipe to this that my husband loves. I'll have to try cooking it with some salsa next time. Happy Easter! :)

  3. Coke and Pork? Now there's a thought. I have one of those can holder gadgets that you put under a chicken when you roast it. I used a can of coke once and was mighty surprised by the taste. I will have to give this simple recipe a try.

    Thanks for sharing Kasha...
