Knock-off Cafe Rio Pork Barbacoa

I love me some Cafe Rio favorite thing is their pork barbacoa, which is a sweet, slightly smokey, slightly spicy shredded pork. While this version isn't totally spot-on, it's still awesomely delicious!

1 pork butt roast (about 4ish pounds)
1 can Coca Cola
1 c salsa
1 onion, sliced
2 Tbsp adobo sauce (or less if you don't want it terribly spicy)
2 c brown sugar
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
pinch of salt

Place pork roast in a crockpot. Cover with remaining ingredients. Cook on low for 7-8 hours (until it starts to shred when you try to pick it up with a fork) or 4-5 hours on high. Shred meat and return to the crockpot (leave all liquid in the crockpot) and let simmer another 30 minutes in the juices. Serve over rice, in tacos or burritos, in salads, or any other way that floats your boat! Makes 12 servings (from a 4 lb roast).
