Cafe Rio Pork Recipe

Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 2 minutes
Servings: 8


  • 2 1/5 pounds roast Pork sirloin tip, or Pork Shoulder.
  • 1 can Dr. Pepper
  • 1 bottle taco sauce red, We used Pace Mild, but do as you please
  • 1-2 cups brown sugar packed, We use 1 1/2 Cups usually, but do it by taste
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • cilantro fresh, chopped


  • Combine sauce in crock pot and then add pork.
  • Cook on low for 8 hours or if you are in a hurry do high for 5-6.
  • Shred pork two hours before the end and let it continue to cook in the sauce.
  • We like to cook up some tortillas, the whole wheat uncooked tortillas are wonderful or just the regular are good, but definitely buy the uncooked ones so they are more fresh.


If you're short on time you can cook on high for 4 hours, but it will not be quite as tender
