Recipe

Between moving into a new apartment, going out of town for work tomorrow, and getting ready for a vacation in a week it has been crazy. The only thing I have even been able to think about cooking (sorry!) is something I can whip together in just a few minutes and come back to hours later after innumerable trips to Target. This is the perfect dish for that and a wonderful twist on a traditional pulled pork. Delish.

Directions

  1. Season the pork shoulder with salt and pepper and rub with achiote paste. Spread the bottom of the slow cooker with onions and garlic. Place the pork shoulder on top.
  2. In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and pour over the pork shoulder.
  3. Cook in your slow cooker for 6-8 hours until the pork is fork tender. Pull the pork apart using a fork and mix together with the sauce. Serve on it’s own, over rice, with a sandwich for a spicy pulled pork, or in tacos. Garnish with freshly chopped cilantro.
