    Leslie in Texas's Note:

    This is an excellent recipe for filling tostados, tacos or burritos. Originally from a September 1989 issue of Bon Appetitthat that featured a "Do It Yourself Tostada Party" in the Cooking for Friends section. It can be made 2 days ahead, covered and refrigerated and rewarmed before serving.Stewing beef can also be substituted for the pork if you prefer.

      This was tasty! I served it over tostadas with mushrooms, onions & bell peppers I cooked alongside the pork. It makes a nice "sauce" as well--not sure the way I served it was authentic, but it was great. A crowd pleaser! Thank you!
