Ingredients

  • 3 lb pork shoulder
  • 1 Tablespoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • zest of 1 lime
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 5 cloves of garlic cut into slivers

Instructions

  1. The night before, cut small holes in the roast and stuff the garlic slivers into the holes.
  2. In a little bowl, add your lime juice, lime zest and spices to make a paste.
  3. Slather your roast with the paste making sure to get it all over.
  4. Place in a ziplock over night in the refrigerator.
  5. The next morning put your roast in your slow cook and cook on low all day. My slow cooker has an 8 hour setting so that is what I used.
  6. When the roast is done, it should fall apart very easily with two forks.
  7. Shred and use for tacos, nachos or on sandwich buns.
  8. Enjoy!
