Butter with A Side of Bread: Easy Slow Cooker Sweet Pork

This is one of my absolute favorite recipes and one that I make at least a couple of times a month!  It is sooo easy and delicious and you can serve it in a variety of ways.  One of favorite things about this recipe is that it makes enough to last for at least a couple of meals!  I have tried several different pork recipes (most of which require at least 6-7 ingredients), and while they have all been good, this one is honestly my favorite and it is the easiest too!
1 boneless pork roast (about 2 lbs)
16 oz. jar salsa (2 cups)
1 cup brown sugar

Place the roast in a slow cooker and then pour the salsa/brown sugar mixture on top.

Cook on low for about 7-8 hours or high for about 4-5 hours.  At this point, the roast should be tender enough that you can pull it all apart with a fork very easily.  You can serve it immediately at this point, but if you have time, let it cook on low for another hour or two before serving.

Serve the pork however you choose – I usually use it to make salads and burritos, and sometimes we just eat it served over rice.  Enjoy!

    I was an original customer of the first (St. George, UT) location of Cafe&#39; Rio… under the original founder. After I had their sweet pork I just HAD to try to recreate it. My recipe is pretty much yours except that I use a big can of red enchilada sauce rather than salsa. We serve the pork very much like Cafe&#39; Rio does their &quot;founder&#39;s favorite enchilada style burrito&quot; –

    This is delicious! We had it with rice, perfect on its own! My husband wants pulled pork sandwiches for Father’s Day. Would this work well on buns? And do you have any suggestions for what to add as garnish? Fried onions maybe? Would cheese taste ok? I don’t really want to serve just plain buns and meat without yummy toppings. Any help would be appreciated! :)

      We love to top ours with coleslaw! Sounds a little odd but it’s SO GOOD. Cheese would be yummy too!
