This is a sweet and tangy pork recipe. It goes great on burritos and tacos, but it also tastes great by itself!

Okay, I am the guy who submitted this recipe, and it's a huge family favorite. To cut the calories (and the sweetness factor), I use only 1 cup brown sugar. (Two more notes: you may use diet cola and you do not need to puree the salsa.) Enjoy!

Delicious! We had this last night and it was a big hit. The only thing I changed is that I used the low setting on my crock pot. We've found a new family favorite.

It was a nice change from other pulled pork I've tried. The smell while it cooked was nice but the sweetness of it took a little to get used to.I think it's because I've never had anything cooked with cola and my tastebuds weren't used to it ,but in the end I must say it was very yummy.My husband loved it and my son ate it too so that tells me it's a keeper.
