Mexican Style Shredded Pork with Lime Rice
By • Filed In: Recipes

Nowadays in the winter months I turn to my crockpot for Sunday night dinners.  Most recipes don’t require a lot of ingredients and the slow cookin’ makes everything juicy and tender.  A couple weeks back I cooked up this simple and yummy Mexican shredded pork.

This is What You’ll Need for the Pork:

  • 1 (2-3 lb) boneless pork loin roast
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 (4 oz) cans diced green chile peppers
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 small onion (optional)
  • 1/4 c chipotle sauce (I couldn’t find this so I used Guy Fieri’s chipotle salsa instead)
Season the pork with salt and place in the slow cooker.  Place chile peppers, onion and garlic on top of the pork.  Poor in the chipotle sauce and 1/4 cup of water.  Cover and cook on low for 7 hours.  Shred with two forks.
To hit my Chipotle craving, I made this rice to go along with the pork.

This is What You Need for the Lime Rice:

  • 1 1/2 c uncooked long grain rice
  • 1/4 c fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
  • 1/4 c fresh cilantro
In a pot bring 2 3/4 c water and rice to a boil.  Add the lime juice and cilantro.  Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
You can eat it with the pork like a rice bowl and top it off with your favorite taco ingredients or wrap it all up into a tortilla for a burrito.   Either way, you can’t go wrong.
