Cilantro Lime Slaw and and Roasted Sweet Pork
This is a recipe from a friend of mine. It looks absolutely delicious :) This is what she told me:
Here is my favorite recipe to make for my family. It is great because you can put it in the crockpot, and let it go. We don't always have the Slaw with the pork. Sometimes we make it like Cafe Rio's pork salad, and put nacho chesse, torti lla chips, lettuce, tomato's, and with it. So yummy!!!Hope it is one you guys will enjoy!
