It's been such a long time since I enjoyed a meal at Cafe Rio, I honestly can't remember if this even resembles the sweet pork there. However, it is very tasty and great for a crowd.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray crock pot with Pam and place pork roast inside. Mix remaining ingredients until sugar has dissolved. Pour over roast and cook on low until pork can be shredded with a fork (8-10 hours). The finished meat/liquid mixture can be frozen for later use.
  2. My favorite way to put this meal together is as follows: make a bed of delicious cilantro lime rice (#310516) on a plate. Top with a scoop of black beans and a scoop of sweet pork. Cover with romaine lettuce and drizzle with equal parts Ranch dressing and salsa verde on top.
