Cafe Rio Sweet Pork, My Take

Since today is my birthday, I decided to share with you my absolute favorite recipe I have found lately, as a treat for you! Cafe Rio Sweet Pork. I love Cafe Rio sweet pork. Pretty much that's all I have to say. Its so good. If you've never been to Cafe Rio or had sweet pork before its totally worth making. We used it in burritos, you could put it on salad or in a quesadilla. But you should definitely make this it might change your life. Seriously, its that good!

Cafe Rio Sweet Pork

2 lb Pork Butt
1/4 teaspoon Oregano
1/4 teaspoon Cumin
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Dry Ground Mustard
1 Medium Onion, Quartered
2 Cloves Garlic, Crushed
3 cans Coca-Cola
1 can Diced Green Chiles
1 - 10oz can Red Enchilada Sauce
1 cup Brown Sugar

1. Combine 2 cans of coca-cola, oregano, cumin, salt, ground mustard, onion and the crushed garlic in crock pot and stir. Place the pork butt in the crock pot and fill half way up the pork with water. Cook on low for 10 hours.

2. Remove the pork, drain the water and remove the garlic and onions. 

3. Shred the pork and return to the crock pot. In a blender combine green chilies, enchilada sauce, brown sugar and 1 can of coca-cola. If it seems too thick add more coke. Pour on top of the shredded pork, mix. Heat on low for 2 more hours.

Eat and enjoy! I promise its so so good!
