3-5 lb. pork shoulder roast
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup Molasses
2 cans (12 oz.) Dr. Pepper (Cola also works if you want a lighter taste and color)
1 cup brown sugar (more or less for sweetness)
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup salsa or tomato paste

Mix garlic, molasses, soda, brown sugar, and salsa in a bowl until well mixed. Pour over salt and peppered roast in crock pot. Cook on low for 5 hours. Shred meat and continue cooking for additional hour.

  1. I just ate there for the first time yesterday and I had the pork and chicken tamales. Oh my gosh! The pork was so good and I am not a huge pig fan. I am excited to try this and maybe try making tamales???? I have tried twice before. Maybe the third time is a charm.
