Cafe Rio Recipe - Pork

Sweet Pulled Pork:

3-4 lb pork loin roast
1 cup brown sugar
1 12-14 oz bottle of mild/med taco sauce
1 12oz can of Coke (I heard that Costa Vida uses Dr. Pepper)

Put all the ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on high for at least 6 hours. Take pork roast out and shred on a cutting board (I also removed the fattiest pieces). Return shredded meat to crock pot and let it heat/soak while you get everything else ready.

Tomatillo Ranch Dressing:

3/4 c. buttermilk
1 t fresh squeezed lime juice
1/2 c. cilantro leaves
1 c. mayo
1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch powder
1 small tomatillo, quartered
1/2 jalapeno, seeded and diced
3/4 can chopped green chilies

Slop everything into either a food processor or a good blender.
