Tonight I realized I was so far behind in blogging that I needed to take a few minutes to make a post. I made this early last week and am just now getting around to posting it. I have been so busy with school and my internship I have lost all of my free time. I have not lost my cooking time (thank god!). I still make time to at least make make dinner everynight. Anways, enough about me. This was a great meal for my busy schedule. It was super tasty, made great leftovers, and was a switch up to our normal repetoire. Enjoy!

1 onion
1 tsp chilli powder
1/4 Cup brown sugar
3-4 garlic cloves
1 tsp dried oregano

Lime wedges for garnish

    Hi, I just found your blog and I can’t wait to try this recipe. My husband LOVES shredded pork.

    I just wanted to point out when i was writing down the recipe, I noticed that the directions call for vinegar, but its not included in the ingredient list. I clicked on the pioneer woman link and found it was 2 tbsp. I just thought I’d point it out. I’m just trying to be helpful. I know I overlook stuff too.

    Thanks for the recipe and I’ll let you know how it comes out.

    Thank you for that :). I corrected it in my ingredient list. I try to be thorough, but evidentally I still missed something. I’m excited to see how you like it.
