Number of Servings: 6



    2 pound boneless pork loin blade roast
    2 large onions, quartered
    3 fresh jalapeno peppers, cut up
    8 cloves garlic, minced
    2 teaspoons ground coriander
    2 teaspoons ground cumin
    2 teaspoons dried oregano, crushed


about 4 oz or 1/2 cup serving



1. Trim fat from meat. Place roast in a large saucepan or Dutch oven; add enough water to nearly cover. Stir in onions, jalapeno peppers, garlic, coriander, cumin, oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 2-1/2 to 3 hours or until very tender.

2. Remove meat from liquid with a slotted spoon; discard cooking liquid. When cool enough to handle, shred the meat. Use as a filling for tamales or tacos. Makes 8 servings (about 3 cups cooked meat).
