Sweet Pork and Lime Cilantro Rice

Sweet Pork

1 (3-5 lb) sirloin or boneless pork loin roast (I had a shoulder roast and used it)
1 cup salsa
1 cup packed brown sugar

1. Place ingredients in a greased 3-1/2 to 5 quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low heat 8-10 hours. Shred pork with fork or potato masher before serving. Use meat in salads, burritos, or tacos.

Cilantro-Lime Rice

1 cup white rice
2 cups chicken broth
2 TBS fresh lime juice (I used the juice of one lime), divided
2 cloves garlic, minced or use 1 TBS garlic powder
1 TBS minced dry onion
1/2-1 cup finely chopped cilantro
1 cup green enchilada sauce

1. Mix rice, chicken broth, 1 TBS lime juice, garlic, and onion. Bring to a boil. When boiling reduce heat, cover and let simmer for 15-20 minutes or until rice is done and liquid absorbed.

2. When rice is done add cilantro, 1 TBS lime juice, and green enchilada sauce. Mix well.

3. Serve rice with sweet pork in taco, salad, or burrito.
