*If you forget to marinate the pork like I did, don't worry- I don't even think you need to...I just seared the pork on all sides then put it right in the crock pot with marinade ingredients and set it on high for 4 hours...I turned it over after 2 hours.
For the Marinade:
- 2.5 lbs pork loin roast, all fat trimmed
- salt and pepper
- garlic powder
- 6 oz Coke zero
- 1/4 cup brown sugar (unpacked)
- 1/4 cup water
- 8 oz Coke zero
- 6 oz can sliced green chilies
- 8 oz tomato sauce
- 1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce
- 1/8 tsp garlic powder
- 1/8 tsp cumin
- 1/8 tsp chipotle chili powder (to taste)
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/3 cup brown sugar (unpacked)
Season pork with salt, pepper and garlic powder and place in the crock pot. Add 6 oz of coke and 1/4 cup of brown sugar. Marinate refrigerated for a few hours or overnight turning meat at least once while marinating.
Remove crock from refrigerator, add water, and cook on high for about 3-4 hours (or until it shreds easily). Remove pork from crock pot and discard any liquid left in the pot. Shred pork with two forks.
Step two: In the crock pot, combine 8 oz coke, green chilies, tomato sauce, chipotle chile, garlic powder, cumin, chipotle chili powder and remaining brown sugar.
Put shredded pork back in the crock pot and combine with sauce. Adjust salt and pepper to taste, cover and cook on high 1-1/2 hours more.
