Ingredients
  • Pork Preparation:
  • 5 pounds pork butt or shoulder
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for searing
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 large white onion, medium diced
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped
  • 1 (2 liter) bottle cola
  • Pork Seasonings:
  • 1 cup cooked black beans
  • 1 red onion, julienne
  • 2 green onions, sliced thin on the bias
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 cup Spanish extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 jalapeno, julienne
  • 1 bag tortilla chips, optional
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • To prepare the pork, slice the pork into manageable 1-inch thick pieces. Season with salt and pepper. In an ovenproof pan, add the oil and sear the pork on all sides until a golden brown crust has formed. Remove the pork from the pan and add garlic, onion and jalapeno. Saute until tender and add cola. Bring to a boil, and put the pork into the cola. Transfer to the oven and braise for at least 1 hour or until the pork is fork tender. Remove from the oven and allow to cool at room temperature. Do not remove pork until cool.

  • To make the seasonings, shred the room temperature pork. Toss the pork with the black beans, and 1/2 of all of the ingredients. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and transfer to a serving dish. Take the remaining ingredients, combine them in a mixing bowl, season with salt and pepper and place them onto the pork as a garnish. Serve with tortilla chips.

  • Cook's Note: You may use canned cooked black beans for this recipe.
