Cafe Rio Sweet Pork

For those of you familiar with Cafe Rio, they have amazing food...this pork was always my favorite type of meat to order. We moved to a state that doesn't have Cafe Rio, so I've had to recreate it! This tastes VERY similar to the real thing! Super easy--give it a try! This recipe comes from the amazing Oh Sweet Basil!

  • Pork Shoulder/Butt -3 to 4 pounds
  • 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, root beer 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.
