1 cup water
1 cup barbecue sauce (Your favorite store bought brand or make your own)
Juice of 1 lime
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

Don’t feel like slaw and pickled jalapeños on your tortillas? Go with your favorite taco toppings – lettuce, salsa, sour cream, shredded cheese, sliced olives, diced tomatoes, chopped onions, whatever you enjoy.
No pressure cooker AND no slow cooker? No worries. Put the pork in a dutch oven with a heavy lid, increase the water to 2 cups, and bring to a simmer on the stove top. Cover with the lid, move to a 350°F oven, and bake for 4 hours, or until the pork is falling apart tender.
