Cafe Rio Sweet Pork


2 lbs. pork roast
1 1/2 cup Coke
1 cup salsa
1 cup brown sugar

Put all ingredients in crockpot. Cook on low for 2 hours then turn on high for 3 more hours. Shred pork. Turn on low until ready to serve.

OK, so I didn't have regular Coke, so I used Diet Coke and I didn't have brown sugar so I made my own... which is just 1 cup sugar/1 TBSP molasses. I think it turned out amazing!! Jared even said that he thought that this tasted better than Cafe Rio's! I don't know about that, but I do know that when I am wanting Cafe Rio pork, this will absolutely do the job!

Tony and I LOVE this recipe too. Although our recipe didn't call for Coke. Just the brown sugar and salsa - so I'm not sure which is better - but we loved it without. Thanks for sharing.

I will have to try this one. I tried another recipe and I wasn't too impressed. I don't know if it was the pork I used or what. What kind of pork did you use for it?
