I really wanted to love this recipe. When I saw it in the Slow Cooker cookbook, I was very excited to try it.
The pork smelled heavenly while it was cooking. But I found that the pork was very sweet when I was shredding it, and didn't even add the last bit of brown sugar, opting instead to put in extra cumin, which really helped with the sweetness. I would not add the coke at all if I made it again. And I might try it with beef since it has a bit stronger flavor to stand up to the rest.
The flavor was good, but I wasn't wowed. I really wished it tasted as wonderful as it smelled when cooking.
