Honey-lime shredded pork

This is one of my quickest go to recipes!  The kids Love it and I love it because leftover pork goes awesome on eggs in the morning, salads for lunch the next day, or just with plain old avocado on top!

Place 3lb pork roast in the crock pot with a few cups of water.  Throw some garlic powder on it for seasoning.  Cook on low 8 hours or on high 4 hours. (I think its always better on low)  About 30 min before dinner time drain and reserve the liquid and shred the meat with a couple of forks (it should shred super easy if you cooked it long enough) Pour in 1/4 c of lime juice, 1/2 c honey and a few tablespoons of chili powder (depending on how spicy you like it) Mix it together with the shredded meat and let it sit until dinner.  If it seems like it needs a little moisture, add some of the reserved liquid.  Give it a taste.  If you like it sweeter add a little more honey (try not to go overboard) and for a more tangy taste add more lime.

We eat this on a salad with avocado, salsa, onions and cilantro!

Let me know what you think!!!
