Cafe Rio Meat

This recipe was shared with me by Annie one of my cousins-in-law. It's super yummy and super easy!! :)

1-2 lbs.of beef or pork or whatever meat you can find that's cheap (Annie's even used elk meat and still claims it's yummy)
3/4 c. salsa
3/4 c. brown sugar

Brown the meat in a skillet on HIGH heat. Only a few seconds on both sides will do. Place the meat into the crock pot. Combine the sugar and salsa in a bowl and mix well; pour it over the meat.

Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 7. With 1 hour remaining shred the meat with a fork and knife. Cook for another hour. (Annie think this takes too much time and work, so she skips this step and then cut the meat in little slivers instead at the table. It STILL tastes great!)

Serve with tortillas that have been browned with cheese. Roll it all up with black beans, rice, tomato sauce, salt, lettuce and juice from a lime. Enjoy!
