Our version of Cafe Rio Pork

Well I know everyone has their version of Cafe Rio Pork, but this is pretty darn good and it is really easy so I told Michelle I would post it. . .

1 pork butt roast
Season with salt, pepper and a little Lawrys Seasoning. Add a cup or 2 of chicken broth and cook on low in a crock pot until it is literally falling apart as you try and get it out of the crock pot.

In a blender combine
1 1/2 cans of Coke
1 Cup sugar
the sauce from one can of Chipotle Pepper in Adobo sauce (the sauce is what you want, not the peppers, too spicy!)
1 tsp Cumin seed
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp minced garlic

Blend until it is all 1 consistency and mixed well.

Take pork out of the crock pot and shred. Get rid or the cooked juices and fat. Put the shredded pork back in the crock pot, add the sauce mixture and cook on low for another hour or two. Then you are done! easy and really good.

For a tip, it is hard to get the Adobo sauce out of the can, so I dunked the peppers in the coke to clean off the sauce and then threw away the peppers as I was done!
