Cafe Rio Sweet Pork - Mexican Meat Mix

  Mexican Meat Recipes:

 Cafe Rio Sweet Pork  
  • 1 Pork Shoulder/Butt  
  • 1 Old El Paso Sauce Packet (Roasted Garlic
  • 1 Cup Root Beer (A&W)
  • 2 Cups Light Brown Sugar                                                                                   
  1. Place the pork in a slow cooker. Mix the sauce, rootbeer and brown sugar in a bowl and pour all over the pork. Cook on low for 6 hours, remove the meat and shred (it should be quite easy and tender). Place the meat back in the sauce and cook on low for an additional 2 hours.
  2. Serve immediately.
Rumor has it that Dr Pepper or Coke are the preferred pops for Cafe Rio, but with this roasted garlic sauce Root Beer seemed to bring out the best flavor
Recipe from:

and here is one even easier than the two above:

Sweet Pork
    • 1 (3 -5 lb) boneless pork roast
    • 1 cup salsa
    • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  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.
Recipe from:

I would try using beef or chicken to these recipes in place of the pork.  Any of these varieties would make a killer Mexican meat recipe.
