Serving Size: 3 ounces

Ingredients

  • Juice of one orange
  • Juice of one lime
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1-3 pound pork roast (recipe nutrition was analyzed using a 3 pound pork loin roast)
  • 1 onion, sliced

Instructions

  1. Stir the orange juice, lime juice, garlic powder, cumin, salt, ground black pepper, and water together in a small bowl.
  2. Spray a slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Cut the pork roast into large chinks (about 3 inches by 3 inches). Place in bottom of slow cooker.
  4. Pour the juice mixture over the pork. Top with the onion slices.
  5. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Pork should be cooked to a minimum temperature of 145°F.
  6. Shred the pork with a fork and serve.

Tips

The orange and the lime will release their juices easily when warm. Heat in the microwave for 10-15 seconds, cut in half, and squeeze the juice out.

Choose the size of pork roast that meets your needs. One pound of raw pork roast will yield about three servings once cooked.

Remove fat and discard during step 6 when shredding the cooked pork if using a shoulder or picnic roast.
