I have learned that if you're going to shred pork you need to use a pork butt roast because it shreds easily.
6 - 7 lb pork butt roast
3 cans caffeine free Coke (NOT diet)
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 cup water
1 3/4 cup packed brown sugar, separated
1 10 oz can Old El Paso red enchilada sauce (mild or medium)
1 can diced green chili's
Put the roast in a large bowl. Pour in 2 cans Coke. Sprinkle 3/4 cup brown sugar on top. Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight or for several hours.
Drain marinade and place pork in a crock pot. Pour in a 1/2 can of Coke and 1/4 cup water. Sprinkle with garlic salt. Cook on high for 8 hours. Remove pork from crock pot, drain liquid and shred the pork. Put the shredded pork back into the crock pot.
In a blender, combine the following ingredients: the other 1/2 can of Coke, green chili's, enchilada sauce and 1 cup brown sugar. Blend well and pour over the shredded pork. Stir together and cook on low for about 1 hour, or until it's heated through and the flavor of the sauce is infused into the pork.
