Cafe Rio Pork Tacos

4 lbs of pork roast

4 Tbsp molasses
1/2 tsp salt
5-6 drops tobasco sauce

Combine all ingredients in a crock pot, cover and cook 10 hours on low.  When pork falls apart or shreds easily remove from juice.  Simmer the juices until it reduces to 1/3-1/2. Put the pork back in the crock pot with a little juice (so it doesn't dry out while waiting for the juice to simmer) and shred.  Then add the juice back in for flavor.
