Instructions

  1. Add the pork, minced garlic, oregano, cumin, vinegar, salt, and pepper to the slow cooker and stir to coat and distribute. 
  2. Add the onion quarters and bay leaves, distributing throughout the pork mixture. 
  3. Cover and cook on the “Low” setting of your slow cooker for six hours, stirring once during cooking if possible.
  4. Once the meat is all cooked (and deliciously tender!), use a slotted spoon to transfer the pork to a plate. Use two forks to shred the meat. All done! 
  5. Serve this with a few slices of fresh avocado and a squeeze of lime to give it some tang. Yum!
