    This is a gem of a recipe I found in the April 2008 issue of bon appetit magazine. I haven't tried it yet but will very soon.

      I don't know how authentic this is, but it's really easy, and very tasty. I've made this twice since I found it in Bon Appetit. I used 2 lbs of "boston butt", and served it with store bought salsa verde, and homemade guacamole. We prefer flour tortillas instead of corn. Served yellow rice or refried beans as a side. I'm so glad you posted this so I won't have to search for the recipe next time. Thanks!
