Cook Once Eat THREE times!!

This is a great way to tackle a busy week. It not only makes 3 separate meals, but we have lots of leftovers too.

3-4 lb lean, well-trimmed pork loin
1 can sprite

1 c your favorite BBQ sauce
1 c your favorite teriyaki sauce
1 c water + 1 TBSP taco seasoning
1 lime
2 tsp chili powder

Put frozen pork loin in the crock pot w/ soda. Cook on low 10-11 hours until meat falls apart with a fork (you could do a thawed roast as well, but I am usually gone longer than it should be in there without burning and my crock pot doesn't have the auto adjust feature).

Drain the liquid from the meat and remove any remaining fat. Cut into thirds.

Heat water in microwave for 1 minute, add taco seasoning  and chili powder and heat for another 30-60 seconds until its boiling.

Shred each separately and mix 1/3 with BBQ, 1/3 with teriyaki sauce, and 1/3 with the taco seasoning mix and juice from the lime.

BBQ pork is great for pulled pork sandwiches and stuffing loaded baked potatoes.

Teriyaki pork is great for lettuce wraps with water chestnuts and some chopped almonds or peanuts.

And taco pork is good for .... tacos, burritos, nachos, and quesadillas.
