Grab A Button

Under the plan of heaven, the husband and the wife walk side by side as companions, neither one ahead of the other, but a daughter of God and a son of God walking side by side. Let your families be families of love and peace and happiness. Gather your children around you and have your family home evenings, teach your children the ways of the Lord, read to them from the scriptures, and let them come to know the great truths of the eternal gospel as set forth in these words of the Almighty.

Yes I am finally
posting the recipe!!!
I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I did.. One suggestion is to buy the Pork Roast when it is on sale. It can be quite pricey! Stock up on a few of them when they are cheap..


Pork Barbacoa

3-4 lbs pork roast or pork loin
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 onion
2 garlic cloves
water, to cover

Sauce
1 (14 ounce) can enchilada sauce
1 can Coca-Cola or Dr. Pepper cola
2 cup brown sugar

Cut pork in large chunks. Put in large crock pot and add water just to cover. Add seasonings. Cut onion in 4 large pieces, crush garlic and add to water. Cook pork on low all day or on high for 3 to 4 hours, or until tender and pork pulls apart easily. Drain water and remove onions and garlic. Pull pork and return to crock pot.
In a separate container mix enchilada sauce, soda and sugar. Add to pork in the crock pot. Cook 1 hour longer. (Can cook less if you don't have time.).
We like to eat this with the Costco raw tortillas that you cook at home and serve the pork in a tortilla with beans and cilantro lime rice. The pork freezes well and can also be made a day in advance and kept in the fridge.


Cilantro Lime Rice

3 cups water
4 t chicken boullion
4 t garlic-minced
1/2 bunch cilantro
1 can green chiles
3/4 t salt
1 T butter

3 c rice
juice from 2 limes

Blend cilantro, green chilies and onion in food processor or blender. Bring water to boil and add all ingredients, simmer covered 30 minutes (or until rice is soft).

Creamy Tomatillo Dressing

1 package Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing
1 cup mayo
1 cup copped cilantro
2 cloves garlic, chopped
3 chopped tomatillos (peel paper off)
1/3-1/2 cups buttermilk, to consistency
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)

Put all ingredients in blender and mix.
