Cafe Rio Sweet Pork

Living out in the Midwest, we don't have the luxury of Cafe Rio.
So, I found this copycat recipe to make and it did the trick!
I broke it down into steps and remember to marinate it overnight for best results!
Then just toss it into the crock pot the next day and let the wonderful aroma fill your house.
To make it a low carb way, I have a photo below, just place it on a bed of chopped romaine!


step 1:
2 pounds pork (rib meat or loin)
¾ cup coke
¼ cup brown sugar

step 2:
1 cup coke
¼ cup water
½ teaspoon garlic salt
¼ teaspoon onion salt
¼ teaspoon chili powder

step 3:
¾ cup coke
¾ cup brown sugar
¼ teaspoon chili powder
1 4 ounce can diced green chiles
10 ounces mild red enchilada sauce


Step 1: Place pork in a zip lock bag. Add coke and brown sugar and seal bag. Chill at least 1 hour or overnight.

Step 2: Add pork to slow cooker and discard marinade. Add coke, water, garlic salt, onion salt, and chili powder. Cover and cook on high 3 hours. Drain slow cooker and shred pork with two forks.

Step 3: Blend coke, brown sugar, chili powder, green chills, and enchilada sauce together in blender. Pour sauce into slow cooker. Cook 30 minutes longer. Serve with rice if desired.

{You can make it a low carb version as well and place it on a bed of chopped romaine}
