If you live in the Midwest United States then you’re familiar with this restaurant, and thus the need for a copycat recipe. If you live anywhere else in the United States, you can thank me later for introducing this recipe to you! 4 words: Cafe Rio Sweet Pork. On one of my trips to Utah I had the chance to eat at Cafe Rio. The hype was high, and boy did it live up to it!
There are a lot of incarnations of Cafe Rio Sweet Pork, but this one from Six Sisters’ Stuff is my favorite! I do sub regular Coca-Cola for the Dr. Pepper, but this pork is SO tender and so sweet! My boys, big and little, love when I make it. And it definitely makes enough for more than one meal! Our first night I usually make quesadillas with it. After that, we use it on salad, sandwiches, or just about anything.
And did I mention you make it with a slow cooker? It really is a dream recipe!
