Laura’s Sweet Pork

This is another favorite from the Real Mom Cookbook. I have included the link to the original recipe as well as we have changed the recipe a little bit.

My kids like this with Cheesey PotatoesCole Slaw, and some rolls. The leftovers are delicious when used for Sweet Pork Quesadillas.

Laura’s Sweet Pork

Laura’s Sweet Pork


  • 2-4 lbs pork roast
  • 1 can Cola (You can try with a diet Coke)
  • 1-10 oz can of enchilada sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 oz diced green chiles
  • 1 c. brown sugar (You can try a brown sugar substitute.)
  • salt and pepper to taste (we like to use mineral salt)
  • a sprinkle of Turmeric, optional


Marinate roast in Cola overnight.

Place roast with the marinade in crockpot and cook on low until very tender.

Drain off liquid after cooking.

Shred pork and place back in crockpot.

Mix in sauce, garlic, chilies, seasonings, and brown sugar.

Cook on low 30 minutes to 1 hour.
