Serves 10-12 | Prep Time 10 min. | Cook Time 2-4 hours

Ingredients

2 lbs. pork (butt, shoulder, whatevs)
2 onions, sliced into rings
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. red pepper flakes (unless you have a Portuguese market nearby and then you can use Pemento Muida)
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup OJ
1/2 cup red wine
1 cup water


Slow Cooker: Add all ingredients to a slow cooker and toss to coat.


Cook on high for 4 hours or until pork falls apart easily.


Shred and serve on soft Portuguese rolls.


Stove Top: Add all ingredients to a large pot and cook over medium heat for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.


If liquid begins to reduce too much, add a bit more water so that the meat will not dry out.


Shred and serve on soft Portuguese rolls.
