One of my favorite restaurants is Costa Vida and their sweet pork is to die for. I have looked everywhere for a similar recipe. Of course Costa Vida won't give out the recipe, but this is close.

This recipe is awesome! I used fresh salsa and added a cup of water because I did it in the over and didn't want it to dry out. I coated my pork with the salsa and brown sugar and it turned out perfect! My kids love it! I love it! Will definitely add this to my monthly rotation if not more!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place ingredients in a greased slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW heat for 8-10 hours.
  2. Shred pork with a fork. Keep lid off after shredding for about 15 minutes so juice will thicken.
  3. Use meat in burritos, tacos, or salads.
  4. If freezing, keep juice and freeze with meat.
