I am a HUGE fan of a good pulled pork! This is delicious, sweet and juicy!
4-5 lb pork butt or shoulder
1 can of soda pop (I've used Coke, Dr. Pepper and Rootbeer- they all work great)
2-3 TBS of garlic chopped
1 small jar of salsa, I like Mild Pace Picante
1 tsp of liquid smoke
3/4 to 1 cup of brown sugar
1-2 tsp of Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp onion powder
garlic salt (a few really good shakes) to taste
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
dash of salt and pepper to taste
throw all of the above in a crock pot and cook about 6-8 hours depending on how hot your crock pot gets
This is great buns with coleslaw (I will post an easy coleslaw recipe later) or its good in a salad.
A traditional salad or Cafe Rio like salad- romaine lettuce, can of black beans (drained), can of corn (drained), cilantro, 2 tomatoes chopped, 2 avacado's chopped, shredded cheddar cheese, fry up some tortilla strips. You could also make a cilantro lime rice to add. This is good with store bought ranch or you could make a packet ranch and use juice from 1 lime and a bunch of chopped cilantro and food process/ blend it to make it like a Cafe Rio salad.
