Pork Barbacoa

Pork Barbacoa

Pork Roast: Put in crock pot with a little water and cook until very tender (about 8 hours on low)

Shred Pork by pulling apart with two forks.

Put meat and all the following items back in the crockpot to finish cooking


Barbacoa Sauce:

1 can enchilada sauce

2 cloves minced garlic

1 small can diced green chilies

1 can coke (not diet coke-- I used pepsi)

1 cup brown sugar

Salt to taste

continue to cook for one hour or more. (we cooked for 3 hours and it was better after one then it was after one.)


Hubs and I rated it a 4 spoon- I would have given it a 5 if I had some Tomatillo dressing to accompany it. (the pork is so sweet, this dressing is spicy and counter balances eachother!)

I found a recipe I will try with it next time! :) If anyone makes it please let me know how it rates!

Creamy Tomatillo Dressing

1 package Ranch Buttermilk Dressing Mix

1/3 cup buttermilk

1 cup mayonnaise (can use half mayo and half sour cream)

3 fresh tomatillos

1 cup fresh cilantro

2 cloves garlic

¼ tsp cayenne pepper

Just put everything into a blender and puree.

Refrigerate for a couple of hours and if you need to, adjust the thickness by adding more buttermilk to thin out or sour cream to make it thicker

So we threw this pork in a tortilla, with refried beans, some spanish rice and cheese. Then topped it with sour cream, tomatoes, avacado or salsa/pico etc... pretty much anything you want. It was yummy but would be FANTASTIC with that dressing... at least it is at the local restraunt that we have eaten it at.
