Yummy Recipe Wednesday! (Mexican Style Shredded Pork)

Hello again friends and welcome to another Yummy Recipe Wednesday. As you may be aware if you follow my blog regularly, I’m a pretty big fan of recipes that involve a slow cooker. I’m sure I’ve mentioned it once or twice. Today I bring you a recipe for a delicious, flavorful, shredded pork that’s perfect for serving over rice, in tacos, or with just about any other kind of Mexican dish you can think of. This is easy to prepare and you just let is simmer in your slow cooker all day and when you get home from work you’ll arrive to a great smelling home and an amazing dinner. Personally I think this shredded pork is better than any that I’ve had at Mexican restaurants but give it a try for yourself and see what you think. I highly doubt that you, your friends, or family will be disappointed.
