Crock Pot Sweet Pork

This recipe is a family favorite...and come to find out (looking in the blog archives)it's a lot like Chelsea's Crock Pot Chicken Tacos, except using Pork

1 pork tenderloin
1 jar Pace Picante (24oz)(mild or medium)
1 cup brown sugar

We usually get our pork at Costco, they come in a 4 pack
While we're at Costco we also grab these tortillas

1) Put pork in crock pot
2) In another bowl mix brown sugar and Picante together
3) Pour mixture over pork
4) turn on high for 4-5 hours
5) Once done shred

We like to do ours Cafe Rio style. We will put the sweet pork in a big flour tortilla, add black beans, cilantro/lime rice, and cheese (we like jalepeno jack, but is good with any kind really). Then roll that sucker up and enjoy!!!

To make cilantro lime rice, just add chopped cilantro and lime juice once the rice is done cooking. Easy peasy!!!

Did you just recently buy the pork at Costco? My costco in Southern Utah said they do not carry it anymore. :( The 4 pack is so cheap and the perfect size. Just wondering...

I did just buy them this week. Hmmm, I wonder why they dont have them anymore :( I know they used to sell them in a 3 pack, before they started selling 4 smaller ones. I'm sorry thats a real bummer! I guess you could just buy them seperately at a regular grocery store.
