From Carla’s birthday extravaganza!
pork butt – we made 2 three pound cuts
1 bunch cilantro
2 liters coca-cola
* 1/4 cup paprika
* 2 teaspoons cayenne
* 2 tablespoons salt
* 2 teaspoons white pepper
* 2 tablespoons ground black pepper
* 2 tablespoons garlic granules
* 2 tablespoons chili powder
* 2 tablespoons oregano
we applied the rub the day prior, and let it all get up in there. chopped the onions and jalapenos roughly, and divided them into the two big pots. filled the big pots with half water, half coca-cola. let these bad boys simmer away in there for about 2 hours. then transfer to the hot grill for a few minutes, giving a good char to the outside and carmelizing some of the coke. by the time all this is happening, the meat should be falling apart – so we finished the job, and served with tortillas (homemade!) and toppings – salsa, lettuce, cheese.
this turned out very nicely – the pork tasted great.
