The most delicious pork you will ever eat.

And that's not an understatement. Admittedly this isn't the best picture. But I wasn't going to waste time retaking them because I was in too big of a hurry to eat. That's how good this pork is. It is the most delicious pork I have ever eaten. For real. And I have eaten a lot of pork. It is moist and tender and so full of flavor. I served it on both corn and flour tortillas and the corn was way better. Just ignore the half eaten beans in the background. Next time I will serve this with whole black beans and maybe some spanish rice.

Where did this most fabulous recipe come from you ask? Well I'll tell you. Because I learned how to share in kindergarten. This fabulous girl is my sweet cousin. Her blog covers her journey following her weight loss surgery. She's awesome. Really. I admire her so much for her determination to go through with the surgery and then maintain everything afterward. And she's an awesome cook. She created this recipe all on her own. Amazing.

The only change I made was to cook it in the oven. I baked it at 325 for 3-4 hours. Just until it was fork tender. This made it slightly crunchy and browned on the edges. And I think that you are supposed to use red salsa that has green chile in it. And even though I have learned to read, again thank you kindergarten, I used green tomatillo salsa instead. But I think it was a happy accident and would make the same mistake again.


  1. Aww, Carrie. Thank you so much! I hope you enjoyed the delicious pork tacos! They were so yummy when I made them, and the leftovers were divine! <3 - Erin

  2. They were so good. And we ate the yummy leftovers for days. Can't wait to make it again!

  3. Oh! And you were right to use green tomatillo salsa. That's what I used!
