Cafe Rio-Like Pork (Copycat)

READY IN: 10hrs 10mins
Recipe by lisar

Anyone who has been to a Cafe Rio in Utah loves their sweet pork. Here is a copycat version that is hard to beat. They serve this sweet pork in tacos, salads, burritos etc. Pass a little of the tomatillo dressing (#212675) with it and...mmmmm...I appreciate my sister for sharing this recipe with me.

Just made this... it seemed like an awful lot of sauce, and smelled very (almost too?) BBQ-ey. I'll rate when it's done--I hope it's good! Okay, my husband loved this (hence 4 stars) but I would've given it 3. It's good, but not close enough to Cafe Rio for me. :) Of course, I am prego and my taste buds are very sensitive... as is my nose, so part of it could have been smelling it all day (not such a good thing these days).
