Cafe Rio Sweet Pork

Pin It
Versatile recipes are great for your cooking repertoire since they can be used over and over again in different ways. And the super easy ones that are done in a slow cooker? Well, that's just an added bonus.
 Take this pork, for instance. You can have it over rice. You can roll it up in a tortilla. You can add it to a quesadilla. You can have it cold on a sandwich. Or maybe on top of a salad? So. Many. Possibilities. It's slightly sweet so it's a different flavor than your typical pulled pork, but it's just as good. Enjoy!
