    "Food:The Way To Anyone's Heart"'s Note:

    This is a wonderful sandwich filler made from pork that cooks until it is shredded. It is spicy and can be served on rolls or on rice. There are variations to this recipe, but this one comes from my Aunt Fanny in Fall River, Mass. Thanks Aunt Fanny!

      This recipe was not the type of cacoila that I have had in the past. The pork never pulled apart as cacoila should. Lackluster at best.

      This was so tasty. I added more pimenta moida and paprika because im used to this having a redder color. I also added a tiny bit of red wine vinegar to make it a but more tangy. It was still so delicious. I never knew that making cacoila at home would be so easy...no more waiting until the Portuguese feasts in the summer to eat it.
