Copycat Cafe Rio Sweet Pork - New Recipe Try and Review

This week we tried a new recipe called Copycat Cafe Rio Sweet Pork. 

The recipe comes from Creme de la Crumb and can be found here

There are three steps to this recipe. 

Marinade - Step One
3/4 cup Coke
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 - 3 lb Pork Roast

Step Two:
1 cup Coke
1/4 cup water
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder*
1/4 tsp Mrs. Dash Onion & Herb*
1/4 tsp Chili Powder

Step Three:
3/4 cup Coke
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp chili powder
1 - 4oz can diced green chilies
1 - 10oz can mild enchilada sauce

*(different from the original recipe, but what I had on hand)

Step 1 - Place the pork into a gallon ziplock bag along with the brown sugar and coke. Place in the refrigerator for one hour or overnight. 

Step 2 - Add the pork to a slow cooker and discard the marinade. Add the ingredients from step two. Cook for 4 hours on high. 

Step 3 - Drain the sauce. Shred the pork, In a blender, combine the ingredients from step 3. Add to the slow cooker and pork and cook another 30 to 45 minutes.

Here is the final result. 

I served this on a corn tortilla with cheese, tomatoes, avocado, taco sauce, and sour cream.

I made a Rice, Cheese, and Bean bake for my side dish. 

The first bite was very sweet, but it got better with each bite. 

You can see the recipe come together and my full review on the video attached below.
