Sweet Pulled Pork 3 Ways!


  • 2-3 lbs. boneless pork carnitas or shoulder
  • 1 12 oz. can Coke
  • 1/4 C. brown sugar
  • 1 10 oz. can enchilada sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 small can diced green chilies
  • 3/4 C. brown sugar


  1. 1. Place pork, coke and 1/4 C, brown sugar in a large plastic bag or bowl and marinade for at least 3 hours or over night.
  2. 2. Place pork and coke/brown sugar marinade into your crock pot and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
  3. 3. Remove meat and shred. Discard liquid
  4. 4. Put enchilada sauce, garlic, green chiles and brown sugar in the crock pot and stir. Add in shredded meat and stir again.
  5. 5. Cover and let cook for 30-60 more minutes
  6. I served mine on rolls with a cabbage tossed in vinegar (a quick slaw). The meat is perfect for burritos or tacos or even a salad!
