Wow! This was GREAT! 5 stars is not enough! I used the leftovers to make soft tacos. I sliced and cubed the leftover pork roast into 1 inch pieces. I sauteed very thinly sliced onions and 2 cloves of minced garlic, then added the leftover pork roast. I added some of the liquid the roast cooked in, and simmered until the pork was falling apart. I topped the mixture with homemade pico de gallo and shredded cheese in warmed corn tortillas and served with pinto beans. Delicious!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the garlic, onion, oregano, cumin, chile pepper, salt, and pepper into a blender. Pour in the olive oil and vinegar. Puree until smooth. Spread this mixture all over the pork loin, and place into a slow cooker.
  2. Cook on low until the pork is fork tender, 6 to 8 hours. (If you need to speed it up, you can substitute 1 hour at high for two of the hours on low. Do this at the beginning, though, not the end.)
  3. When ready, cut the pork into chunks, or shred; garnish with lime wedges to serve.
