    Café Rio’s Famous Shredded Pork

    Step 1

    4 lbs. pork roast (bone in)
    2 T. brown sugar
    2t. Crushed red pepper
    2 t. Salt kosher ( I used sea salt.)
    2t. Cumin
    2t Paprika
    1 Sliced onion
    2 Cloves garlic minced
    1c. Chicken stock
    1 Can of Coke (Not diet)

    Trim fat off of roast. Rub the brown sugar, red pepper, salt, cumin, and paprika over the roast covering it completely. Put roast in a crock pot. Set the temperature on low. Add the onion, garlic, chicken stock, and coke. Cook for 8 hours. A good time prepare it is at night just before you go to bed. Do step 2 the next morning.

    Step 2

    1c. Brown sugar
    2 t. paprika

    Take roast out and shred it. While the meat is out add the brown sugar and the paprika. Let them dissolve. Return the meat to the crock pot. Continue to cook the meat for another 8 hours.
