DIRECTIONS

  • Place pork in crock pot.
  • Add everything else.
  • Cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 8.
  • You want the pork fork tender so you can pull it apart using 2 forks.
  • When done place a large mixing bowl on the counter and center a collander.
  • Strain the juice from the pork mixture and reserve.
  • Return meat mixture to the crock pot and pull the pork apart, leaving small chunks.
  • Keep crock pot on warm.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place pulled pork in a baking pan-single layer.
  • Add enough reserved juice to moisten.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the meat just starts to brown.
  • Remove.
  • Serve with hot corn tortillas (I fry mine keeping them soft), sour cream, guac, cheese -- whatever lights your candle.
  • This recipe serves 4 for a meal, 6 for a snack.
