This is a good “go to” recipe when I’m busy with a project around the house, since there’s very little prep work. It’s great to be about my work, but as I smell this cooking away, I smile, knowing that later in the day we’ll be rewarded with a delicious home cooked meal.
2 – 1/2 lbs. lean pork
1 – 14.5 oz can crushed tomatoes
1 green pepper, deseeded & diced
1 jalapeno, deseeded & diced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon oregano
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
a handful of fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
Place the pork in a roasting pan, cover with the tomatoes, then top with the seasonings. Cover with the roaster lid, and place in a 250 F oven for about 3 hours or until tender. Remove the meat onto a platter, and shred with a fork. Add the shredded meat back into the seasoned juices, and stir. Serve with flour tortillas, shredded cheese and sour cream.
We like to make burritos, or fry them to make chimichangas. Just make sure to use a slotted spoon and squeeze out some of the juices …no soggy burritos on my watch!
