always, always asked for this recipe. started with cafe rio, then kalee unlocked the secret and i made some up along the way to present this masterpiece to you.
cook for 12 hours on low.....some pork
i have used many kinds. i love a costco tenderloin roast. they are dark and small and really tender. but this recipe will make any cut of a large part of pork submit to goodness.
so get that crock pot out. put your little meat in ( i usually fit 3 small ones) and pour coke over it. thats right, as in classic. cola. mr coke. you could also add a jar of salsa. it does help with a depth of flavor that does make a difference.
i usually do this before bed. it will give you strange nightmares when you sleep smelling bold flavors like this. running from pigs all night and all.;)
anyway. 12 hours. then, get that pork outta there. discard the liquid. i put the cooked pork in a ziplock and put it in the fridge until i am ready to serve it. then, i move onto making the succulent sweetness that boggles your mind.
i have come up with a simple and bold sauce that makes this sing even tho there was a recipe with exact measurements at one time.
equal parts of:
BBQ sauce ( i use kraft honey or hickory or whatever)
and brown sugar.
mince a couple of cloves of garlic too. it will make you happy.
mix it all together and warm it in the crock pot. put it on one of those cute little costco dinner rolls that come in the big bags in quantities of 36 and you will say, thank you heidi.
or, eat it over a salad with beans and rice and cheese.
maybe, a burrito. just eat it......
