Cafe Rio Sweet Pork

I am making this for a little birthday celebration for Josh tonight. So far it is looking pretty good.

4 lb pork roast

Rub roast with the following mixture:
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. brown sugar
1 tsp. red pepper
1 tsp. cumin

Place roast in crockpot.

Combine:
1 onion chopped
1 cup chicken broth
1 can coke
2 cloves minced garlic

Pour over roast.

Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Shred pork and put back in crockpot. Add 2-3 cups brown sugar.

Cook for another 3 hours.

I actually put my roast in last night at around midnight and let it cook all night. Around 10 this morning I shredded the pork and added the brown sugar. Now I am letting it cook until we are ready to celebrate tonight.
