Tomatillos: "Cafe Rio" style sweet chicken/pork

This is the one ingredient from the challenge that I did get a chance to make! This was a big hit in our family. I got the recipe from my husband's side who eat this regularly, especially when the family is all together. It is really simple!

"Cafe Rio" style chicken/pork
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup salsa verde (that has tomatillos)
1 1/2-2 lbs chicken or pork

This recipe is so easy and it can be made a variety of ways. You can cook the sauce with the raw chicken/pork or pour it over the cooked meat and let it simmer for a bit. I usually shred the meat in my Kitchenaid mixer with the paddle attachment.

I serve it with shredded cheese, lettuce, cilantro rice (similar), and cilantro ranch (similar) on warm tortillas.
