This pork is to die for!! The lime dressing just MAKES it too!!! There are so many variations to make with it...... Tacos, burritos, salads, or just simply with rice and beans. We can't get enough! The great thing is this is slow roasted in a crockpot so you could put it in hrs earlier and come back! The whole family will love it! Kids devour it! This is for sure one of our favorites!:)
