I am majorly {obsessed} with Cafe Rio.  My Cafe Rio Recipe that I make tastes just like the real deal.  Well this recipe that I found I think gives my other recipe a run for the money.  It tasted just like Cafe Rio, but with reduced calories.  Do you know what they say is the secret ingredient?  Coca Cola.  This recipe is made with Coke Zero.  It makes the meat literally just melt in your mouth because it is so moist and tender.  It is so easy to shred this and just falls apart.  The flavor is out of this world with a little bit of sweet to it.  I had my pork over a delicious salad tonight and the whole family loved it... well except for the picky one.  He wouldn't try it.  He had a quesadilla.  Totally missed out! This was amazing!

Rating: 5 stars  Difficulty of Recipe: 3 stars
Review:  I think my other recipe just got replaced.  The flavor was still just as great and so close to Cafe Rio's but with reduced calories.  We loved it.  We will definitely make this again and again!

For the marinade:
2.5 pounds pork loin roast, fat trimmed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
6 ounce coke zero
1/4 cup brown sugar (unpacked)
1/4 cup water

Step two:
8 ounce coke zero
6 oz can sliced green chilies
8 ounce tomato sauce
1 chipotle chili in adobo sauce
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp chipotle chili powder
1/3 cup unpacked brown sugar
salt and pepper to taste

1. Mix together the salt, pepper, coke zero, and brown sugar.  You can place the roast with this marinade into the crockpot or gallon size bag and let it marinate overnight or for at least two hours.
2. Take the pork out of the fridge and add 1/4 cup water to the marinade.  Cook on low 4-6 hours or high 3-4.  The pork should be able to shred very easily with fork.
3.  Drain all liquids and shred the pork with two forks.  Mix ingredients for step 2.  The coke zero, green chilies, tomato sauce, chipotle chili, garlic powder, cumin, chipotle chili powder, brown sugar, and salt and pepper to taste.  Mix with the shredded pork and continue cooking for an hour.
4. You can serve with black beans, cilantro lime rice, or whatever your heart desires.  :)
