“I made this to go in burritos with beans and rice Very simple, flavorful pork would be good on nachos also!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all of the spices together and sprinkle most on the roast, reserving about 1 tsp.
  2. Put the roast and water/broth in a crock pot on low for 6-8 hours.
  3. Now you can do 2 things here: remove the roast, drain the liquid, put the roast back in the crock, shred it with the remaining seasonings and about 1/2 cup of water and stir OR.
  4. remove a little of the liquid from the pot and shred the meat (with forks) in the remaining liquid and taste and season if necessary.
  5. *if I use a roast with a good amount of fat I usually drain it to drain off some of that grease, if it's lean then I use the liquid it cooked in.
  6. Serve it up! It makes great burritos (get the big tortillas!) with all the fixins- including the beans and rice.
