Recipe Notes

  • To make on the stovetop: Dice the pork into 1/2 inch pieces, then add one tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil to a large pot and saute the pork over medium-high heat, until browned, then remove from the pot. Add the garlic and onion to the pot and saute for about 5 minutes, until the onions are translucent, then add the pork, salsa, canned chilis, coconut milk, lime juice, cumin, sea salt, and beans. Cook over medium-low heat for about 30 minutes, until the pork is fully cooked through. At this stage, the pork will be fully cooked, but not yet shreddable. If you'd like it to be a shreddable consistency, continue to simmer over low heat for about 2 hours.
