Galley Wench's Note:
This is a combination of recipes I found on Food Network. If you are unable to find Southwest Seasoning in your local market, try this one Emeril's Southwest Seasoning. The cooking method for the pork can be either in a crock pot, oven or perssure cooker; just follow the manufacturers instruction. Can be served with corn or flour tortillas.
