Cafe Rio Sweet Pork

This recipe originally from Abby Olson.

4 lbs. pork roast
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp. cumin
1-2 TBSP molasses
2 1/2 (8 oz) cans tomato sauce
1 1/2 C brown sugar
2 C Dr. Pepper
pepper to taste

Cut fat off pork. Place pork in crock pot or covered pot. Mix ingredients and pour over pork. Simmer in crock pot until meat pulls apart easily, about 6-8 hours. Or cook in oven 1 hour @ 325 degrees, then about 6-8 hours @ 250 degrees. You can drain off the juice if desired. Shred pork and return to pot. Serve on warm tortillas with salsa, black beans, lime rice, cilantro dressing and anything else you wish. Serves about 12.
