I have had a lot of copycat recipes with Cafe Rio sweet pork and this is by far my favorite. I have had the leftovers for the last three days and it’s been fantastic!






  • 3-pound pork shoulder/butt
  • 2 cups of coca-cola soda – not diet
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced green chilis
  • 1 10 oz red enchilada sauce
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar






  1. Spray inside of a large crockpot with cooking spray. Place pork roast inside. Pour 1 cup of Coca-Cola ( I used a measuring cup) and water around pork. (It does not need to cover roast) Sprinkle evenly with garlic salt, salt, and pepper. Cover with lid and cook on High heat for 6 hours, or on Low heat 8 – 9 hours.
  2. Remove pork from crockpot and transfer to a cutting board. Discard liquid from crockpot. Shred pork with two forks, and remove any fat.
  3. Using an emersion blender, blend the remaining cup of coca-cola, the green chilies, enchiladas, and brown sugar. Blend until smooth.
  4. Place shredded pork back in the crockpot. Pour the enchilada sauce mixture over the shredded pork. Cover the crockpot with the lid and cook for 2 hours on low heat. 
  5. Serve pork on burritos, salads, nachos, and tacos.
