Directions

Generously season pork roast with salt, pepper, and garlic powder and place in slow cooker. Add 6 oz of coke zero and 1/4 cup brown sugar to the slow cooker. Place slow cooker in fridge and let marinate at least 3 hours or overnight. (if slow cooker is too large for fridge you can place roast and marinade in a large ziplock bag). When done marinating, add 1/4 cup water and cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-7, or until pork shreds easily. Remove pork from slow cooker and shred with two forks. Drain all juices remaining in the slow cooker. In the slow cooker combine remaining 8 oz coke zero, green chiles, tomato sauce, chili in adobo, 1/8 tsp of each garlic powder, cumin and chili powder, 1/3 cup brown sugar, and additional salt and pepper to taste. Place shredded pork back in the slow cooker, cover, and cook for another 1 1/2-2 hours. Serve shredded pork on salads, over rice, in burritos, or quesadillas. source: Skinny Taste
