Sweet Pork

A few weeks ago Jack and I went to Montana to spend a week at his grandparents cabin on Echo Lake. It was absolutely heavenly. We got a tan, read books, took naps and spent 8 hours a day playing in the water. I didn't want to come home. Especially because a week at the lake means I only have to cook ONE day! The rest of the days I just get to sit back and let my amazing sister in laws cook (and I do have AMAZING sister in laws- thanks bro-in-laws for marrying girls I love). One night my fabulous sister in law Angeline made Pork Tacos. Oh. My. Gosh. I drool thinking about them. The pork tasted so similar to Cafe Rio Pork that I was sure she must have spent most of the day in the kitchen. Not so. The only recipe I've seen that is easier than this is Koolaid. It would be a waste for you NOT to try this recipe.

Sweet Pork
3 cups Salsa*
1 cup Brown Sugar
3 lbs. pork or chicken

*We blend our salsa in a blender because I'm afraid of onion chunks- but you don't have to.

Combine Salsa and Brown Sugar and pour over pork/chicken in a slow cooker. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 3-4. Shred meat and serve.

The possibilities are endless with this recipe. We made pork tacos, but I bought enough pork to try pork enchiladas, pork quesadillas, pork tostadas, pork burritos.... sounds like we're gonna be eating a lot of pork at my house.



  1. Hubs made dinner tonight using this recipe put in enchiladas. Best meal ever!

  2. This was super yummy! And really easy. We made a side of Mexican rice.
