I've adapted this recipe that I received from a friend. Her recipe called for chicken, but when I decided to make it, I had pork on hand - and it's become a huge hit!

I love how well the flavors with with the pork, and the leftover roast makes the perfect filling for some tacos served Mexican style (cilantro, a dash of lime, and finely chopped onions). Another leftover idea: Italian Pork Sammies. Just lightly shred the meat, heat through, and serve on a French roll topped with some provolone or mozzarella, roasted red bell pepper strips, and shredded lettuce. Lean, flavorful, and easy on time and money.
