CAFE RIO PULLED PORK



This is a family favorite. My kids ask for this all the time. The great thing is that unless you're feeding company, it is good for a couple of meals and a lunch here and there. Don't forget the green sauce--it makes it! Don't skimp on the cooking time. It doesn't take long to do the preliminary steps and it so so tender and delicious. You'll love it!

6lb Pork Roast: Put in Crock Pot and cover halfway up with water. Cook it overnight. Discard Water (or pour over your dog's food). Shred.

In separate bowl mix a 12oz can of salsa, 1 can caffiene-free Coke, and 2 cups brown sugar. Pour over meat. Cook an additional 3 or 4 hours.

Eat on a tortilla or in a taco. You can add rice, black beans, cheese, whatever you'd put on a regular taco or burrito.

Top with this delicious sauce (or pour a giant puddle on your plate and dip each bite like I do.)

In bowl combine
1 Buttermilk Ranch Mix packet.
2 cups mayo
1 cup milk
1 cup sour cream

In a blender combine
2 tomatillos (I use canned and then freeze the rest for the next time I make this)
1 jalapeno, seeded (I use canned and then freeze the rest for the next time I make this)
1/2 - 1 bunch cilantro, washed
1 Tbs lime juice (lemon juice will work in a pinch)
1 clove garlic, crushed

Mix everything together and enjoy on your pork. Delicious!

Love this recipe and it's a great one for a large crowd.
We have made this, opened a can of black beans, made rice, bought green enchilada sauce and monterey Jack cheese and have made ourselves pulled pork burritos, enchilada style.
They taste just like the real thing. "Meat Candy".
