pork barbacoa


This pork is fantastic! Give it a try! We ate it with tortillas (buy the uncooked kind at the grocery store, absolute best!) beans, lime cilantro rice, lettuce, pico de gallo and cheese. MMMmmmm!

Pork Barbacoa

5-6 pound pork roast
3-4 cloves minced garlic or 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
1 onion, diced

1 tablespoon cumin
3/4 to 1 cup dark brown sugar (depending on what sweet level you would like)
12-15 oz bottle La Victoria taco sauce
20 oz Coke

Place pork roast in a crock pot with the garlic and onion. Add water halfway covering roast. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Drain water and add remaining ingredients. Cook 4-6 more hours on low. Shred pork and serve. Great in burritos, salads, tacos, pizza, over rice, noodles...anything really!

Have you tried making the copycat Cafe Rio cilantro lime rice?
So good and I cook it in the crock pot.

I have never tried rice in the crockpot. Sounds so much easier! I was going to post my recipe for it soon. But maybe I should try this one first.
