Cafe Rio Sweet Pork

There are a number of versions of this recipe going around.  I have probably 3 different ones in my inbox right now.  I'll share the way we made it, and you can tweak as you like.

I like to serve this either on a tortilla with fillings or as salad.  Toppings we like include lettuce, taco rice, black beans, tomatoes, avocado and Creamy Tomatillo dressing.

Cafe Rio Sweet Pork

3 lbs. pork roast
1 16 oz. bottle of salsa (or can of red taco sauce)
1 can Coke or Dr. Pepper 
1 c. brown sugar

1. Place pork in crock pot and fill it half-full with water. Cook on high for 5 hours. 
2. Drain off water. Cut pork in thirds. Mix together sauce ingredients and pour into crock pot on top of pork. Cook an additional 3 hours on high. 
3. Shred pork with fork. Leave meat in crock pot on low until ready to serve.
