Here is my easy "cheater version" of Cafe Rio pork. The original knock off recipe requires you to marinate the pork overnight. Aint nobody got time for that!!! This keeps things easy.
In the oven at 400 degrees bake:
salt and peppered 4 pounds of pork roast
2 chopped garlic cloves
Enough coke to almost cover the roasts in a 9x13 (probably 2-3 cans)
Bake for 3-4 hours or until pork starts to shred easily with a fork
Remove roasts and discard liquid.
Shred pork and put back in 9x13.
Make this sauce:
In a blender or with a hand blender combine:
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups of coke
2 cans of green chiles
21 ounces of red enchilada sauce ( 1 1/2 small cans)
Cover shredded pork with sauce and bake at 350 for 2 more hours.
Serve with Cafe Rio rice, Cilantro ranch dressing, lettuce, cheese, black beans, or any other burrito toppings you like! (see recipes below)
I always side this with pioneer womans salsa, guac, and chips!
