While living in Utah, I became fiercely addicted to the local Mexican favorite… Cafe Rio. Every time I go back to visit, I some how find my way to one of their locations within 24 hours of being on Utah soil. Thanks to my sister-in-law, I have gotten my hands on a VERY good copy cat of pretty much all their recipes. So, for the next few Fridays I’ll be publishing the next installment of Cafe Rio Goodness.
Cafe Rio Pork Barbacoa
One Pork Roast…. either rib or shoulder (shreds the best)
1 (2) cans El Pato Mexican tomato sauce (its in a little yellow can)
2 (3) small cans tomato sauce
3/4 C. (1 1/2 C.) brown sugar
2 (4) cloves garlic, minced
Place all ingredients in Crock Pot, cook on high for 3-4 hours until done. Shred meat, let meat soak in sauce for 20-30 minutes before serving.
Seriously, this is such a close copy cat. I love it, and KNOW you will too!
