So I have been wanting to find a good recipe for Sweet Pork to make some burritos at home. I looked on several websites and even blogs and someone, I don't know who, suggested a recipe that is so much simpler than all the others that I have seen! I tried it and LOVED it! (So did my family!) So I thought that I would share it with all of you too!
3 lbs Pork (can be roast, shoulder, or butt)
1 can enchilada sauce (any kind)
1 to 1 1/2 Cups brown sugar
In a crock pot, add as much water that will cover half of the pork. Cook for 5 hours on high, or 8 hours on low. Take out pork. Drain water from crock pot. Shread pork with fork and take off bones and fat.
In a mixing bowl, add enchilada sauce and brown sugar.
combine pork and mix and return to crock pot.
Cook for additional 2 to 3 hours. Enjoy!
(doesn't smell sweet at first, but after an hour or two will smell and taste divine!)
I also bought green enchilada sauce, back beans, and mozzarella and made rice to add to the burrito, which made it even better!
For the rice, I just put 1 cup rice with 2 cups chicken broth (or 2 cups warm water with 2 dissolved bouillon cubes in it) and cooked it in my rice cooker. Yummy on it's own too!
Try it! You'll like it!
