Recipe by Kerena

I wrote this recipe down years ago while watching Jeff Smith, The Frugal Gourmet make it. It is so good and the meat can be used for tacos, burritos, enchiladas, etc. It freezes well and is easily doubled and tripled. The recipe calls for pork but he said you could also use a chuck roast or chicken.
