This recipe is also great made in the slow cooker. If you can't find liquid smoke, we've used smoked salt (available next to the salt) with great results. Don't use a loin or tenderloin in this recipe--they are too lean and dry.

Ingredients

4pounds pork roast
2tablespoons sea or kosher salt
2tablespoons liquid smoke
1tablespoon grated ginger
2cloves garlic, crushed
2tablespoons soy sauce
8 Corn tortillas
Cilantro
Lime wedges

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Rub salt, liquid smoke and seasonings over pork roast. Wrap securely in aluminum foil. Roast about 3 hours or until very tender.
  2. Remove from heat, let stand about 15 minutes. Shred, removing slabs of fat, and serve.
