Sweet Pork Barbacoa

Author Gina Kleinworth

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds pork sirloin roast
  • 16 ounces Dr. Pepper
  • 28 ounce can green enchilada sauce
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar - packed
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 3/4 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder

Instructions

  • Spray slow cooker with cooking spray
  • Combine pork & Dr. pepper in cooker & cover - cook on high about 4 hours
  • After 4 hours has passed combine remaining ingredients in large bowl & whisk to combine
  • Add this mixture to your slow cooker & allow to cook an additional 2-3 hours
  • *Note- after about 2 hours I kick the heat down to low just to let those flavors simmer a little longer but 2 hours is usually sufficient.
  • You know when it's done when the pork is falling apart as you try to remove it from the cooker
