Coca-Cola Shredded Pork

This recipe is an adaptation of a Dr. Pepper Shredded Pork recipe but seeing as how I detest Dr. Pepper I substituted it with Coke and, surprisingly, it turned out dee-licious! Yum!

Coca-Cola Shredded Pork
Serve 12

1 whole Large Onion 1 whole Pork Shoulder ("pork Butt") - 5 To 7 Pounds
Salt And Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1 can (11 Ounce) Chipotle Peppers In Adobo Sauce
2 cans Coca-Cola

Peel the onion and cut it into wedges. Lay them in the bottom of a large slow cooker.

Generously salt and pepper the pork roast, then set it on top of the onions in the pot. Pour the can of chipotle peppers over the pork (include the sauce.) Pour in both cans of Coke. Place lid over pot, then cook for ten hours.

Remove meat from pot and place on a cutting board or other work surface. Use two forks to shred meat, discarding large pieces of fat. Strain as much of the fat off the top of the cooking liquid as you can and discard it.

Return the shredded meat to the cooking liquid, and keep warm until ready to serve. (You can also refrigerate the meat and liquid separately, and then remove hardened fat once it’s cold. Then heat up the liquid on the stovetop and return the meat to the liquid to warm up.

Serve on warm flour tortillas. Top with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, grated cheese, avocado slices, salsa, and whatever else you’d like.
