    This is another great authentic recipe that cooks all day in the crock pot – it turns out a fantastically tender and juicy meat that is easily shredded and tastes great with a bit of lime and avocado.

    4 servings
    208 calories per serving

    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon crumbled dried oregano
    1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
    1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 ½ lb. boneless pork shoulder roast
    2 bay leaves
    2 cups chicken broth
    1 lime cut into wedges

    Mix together salt, garlic powder, cumin, oregano, coriander, and cinnamon in a bowl. Rub spice mix into the pork.. Place the bay leaves in the bottom of a slow cooker and add the broth then put the pork on top. Cover and cook on low about 10 hours, turning half way through. Remove and let cool then use 2 forks to shred the meat. Use the left over liquid to moisten the meat. Plate and squirt each portion with a bit of lime just before serving. I like to serve this on a flour tortilla with some avocado slices (not included in calorie count above – add 210 calories for a flour tortilla and 2 -3 slices avocado)
