Pork Barbacoa

This is a recipe that feeds 6-8 people and is easily adjusted. I usually warm my tortillas on a pan before serving them. Items I include to put in the burrito are: rice, black beans, monterey jack cheese, green onions, tomatoes, and lettuce. Feel free to experiment. The sauce combined with the pork in the burrito is amazing. I personally enjoy sans tortilla--salad style.

Pork Barbacoa:

4 lb. pork roast
1 c. salsa
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 c. 7-up

Cook in a crock pot on low for eight hours. Shred pork before serving.

Cilantro Lime Tomatilla:

1 pkg. ranch dressing mix
1 T. Salsa verde
1/8 t. Tabasco
1/3 bunch of cilantro
2 cloves of garlic
3/4 c. mayo
3/4 c. sour cream
1/2 c. buttermilk
1 lime, zest and juice

Blend ingredients in blender until smooth.

I've made this recipe a few times - yummy and great for lots of company. Thanks Amy! Works well with Coke, too. I also like to mix lime and cilantro into the rice.
