Our family is in love with Cafe Rio sweet pork. Doesn’t matter what it’s in, we will eat it. So in order to help feed our addiction and save some money, I have been on the hunt to try to find a recipe that tastes similar.
I don’t think I’ll ever get it exactly the same, but I thought, if I could get close, I’d be doing good. So I tried several recipes and nothing was even close. I finally found one from a fellow PYPer on pinchingyourpennies.com that was good. I altered the recipe slightly and came up with a winner. That is where Laura’s version of Cafe Rio sweet pork was born.
We usually have it on taco, but beware it is messy. You better use a fork if you are going for taco. Burritos would be great for this also. We’ve even put it on nachos or in a quesadilla.
