Sweet Pork Tacos

October 17, 2010
This is a delicious sweet pork recipe. I like to refer to it as my wanna be Cafe Rio Pork. And lets be honest, anything you can cook in a crock pot wins my vote.
First you must brown your pork.
Then you mix your delicious sauce, pour it over the top and let it cook on high for six hours (I bet five would even be plenty).

 This is the salsa I used and it was very yummy. Big Daddy sat in the Mexican isle of the grocery store for quite some time watching what salsa people were buying the most of, and this was the lucky one.

Once it is cooked, shred the pork and put back in the crock pot for an additional hour so it can soak up all the yummy juices!

2 lbs pork loin
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup salsa
1 can chicken broth
1 tbs apple cider vinegar
1 tsp chili pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tbs oil
1. Heat oil in a skillet and brown the pork on all sides. Place pork in crock pot. Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl and pour over the pork. Cook on high for six hours. Shred the pork and return to the crock pot for an additional hour.
2. Serve as tacos, salad, or quesadillas with your favorite toppings!

    Rick and I make something similar. Just put the pork roast in the slow cooker, add half a jar of salsa and a can of green chilies and you have amazing Mexican Pork. ๐Ÿ™‚ By the way, I tried the red sauce enchiladas… really good! Keep the recipes coming please!
