Mexican Pork Salad

Dear Family and Friends,

In case anyone else wanted this recipe I thought I would post it. Its the make at home version of the Cafe Rio pork salad and I can't taste the difference.

Shredded Pork

3 lb pork roast
1 can red enchilada sauce
1 can 4 oz diced green chilies
2 cloves garlic - minced
1 can coke (NOT DIET but it can be caffeine-free)
1 c brown sugar
Slow cook pork for 4-5 hours with 1 c water, salt and pepper. Drain and shred pork. Add other ingredients and cook 2-3 more hours.

Tomatillo Ranch Dressing

1 c mayonnaise
1 pkg buttermilk dressing mix
1/2 c buttermilk
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 c cilantro, chopped
2 cloves garlic
3 tomatillos

Blend all ingredients in blender till smooth.


4 c water
2 c rice
4 cubes chicken bouillon
1 tsp cumin
2 cloves garlic
6 green onions
Cook 20-25 minutes

Serve with warm tortillas, lettuce, black beans, cheese, guacamole and sour cream etc.

When we had morning church I would put this in the crock pot in the morning, come back, shred and do all the other stuff and everything would be just right for dinner time.
