Tomato Lime Salsa


Preheat oven to 325° F.

Heat oil in a heavy stove-top-to-oven pan over medium-high heat. Sear pork on both sides until deep golden brown. Surround with onions and cook for 1 to 2 minutes more to brown onions slightly. Stir in spices and cook for 30 seconds to bloom.

Add water and season well with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer, cover with a tight-fitting lid and place in the oven. Cook for 1 1/2 hours or until pork is fork tender. Shred into large chunks removing any bone and excess fat. Keep pork warm in its cooking juices until ready to serve.

Serve with fresh tortillas, black beans and Tomato Lime Salsa. You may prepare this up to 3 days in advance.

I made the recipe for the chipolte shredded pork, the black beans, salsa and handmade tortilla's OMG! The whole thing turned out awesome! I will definetly make this again. I've made a shredded pork recipe before in the slow cooker but this recipe beat the one I had hands down. You won't be disappointed. I made the dough for the tortillas the day before and used lard. They were not to difficult to make. Try it you'll love it!

Worked for me!

I'm not much for fuss when it comes to cooking. The shredded pork was easy in a convection toaster oven. The beans took longer since I doubled the recipe, but they were worth it. Sitting on the stove and stirring every now and then was no big deal really. The salsa was tasty and EASY. I shied away from making my own tortillas, but I'm feeling adventurous and may have to give them a try!
