Fake Cafe Rio Pork Salad (for Sarah, Andrea and Tara)

Pork Roast ( I get mine from Costco, it costs about $10 and comes 3 in a pack, I use all three at once)
2 liter bottle of Coke (not diet)

Place the pork in crock pot, cover with coke.
Cook on high for about 8 hours. Drain off coke. Place pork back in
crock pot and shred, still set on high.
Add to that 1 large can green enchilada sauce and 2 Cups of dark brown sugar.
I also add 1/2 Cup molasses. Cover and let sit for about 10 minutes.
Stir and shred a little more.

1 package of tostada shells
romaine lettuce, washed and shredded
monterey jack cheese, shredded
rice and beans of your choice, heated
salsa and sour cream

I like to make a salad from the pork. I place the lettuce on the bottom
then add rice and beans, pork and some crumbled tostada shell.
Top with salsa, cheese and sour cream.

I don't like to use dressing. But if you really like the Cafe Rio salad dressing...
rumor has it you can google the recipe and come up with
something pretty close.

I hope you like this as much as me!

I definitely have to give this try. I posted the recipe on my blog because we have "Cafe Rio Wednesday" not every week but most of them. We have the Pork Tostada. I am looking for a recipe for the house dressing though.

I love Cafe Rio, does it really taste just like it?

Hey Allie! It tastes pretty close...close enough that you will be happy with a Sunday dinner salad!

We had this the other day. It was really good! =0) We had it with guacamole also.

My mom used the leftover pork to make enchiladas, which we had for dinner today.

They were both very yummy. =0)
