(For Friday Favorites we spotlight past recipes that you may have missed, and this Slow Cooked Sweet Barbacoa Pork from Skinnytaste sounds amazing!)

This recipe for Crock Pot Sweet Barbacoa Pork from Skinnytaste is one that Gina created when she got requests from readers to try to create a healthier version of Cafe Rio's Sweet Pork. Gina admits she has never eaten at Cafe Rio, but she looked at lots of copycat recipes to come up with this version which she says was a big hit with her family.  My family has a lot of avid Cafe Rio fans, so I will definitely be sharing this with them!  (And Coke Zero is not really a "from-scratch" ingredient, but I couldn't resist sharing this.)

Ingredients for this CrockPot Recipe:

  • pork loin roast
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder
  • Coke Zero
  • brown sugar
  • water.  
Step 2:
  • Coke Zero
  • sliced green chilies
  • tomato sauce
  • Chipotle chile in Adobo
  • garlic powder
  • cumin
  • Chipotle Chile powder
  • salt
  • pepper
  • brown sugar
