This recipe works in the tortillas with a salsa, or in slices, served in its own juices with a wild rice salad and a nice sharp dressing. You need to prepare the pork the night before or the morning of the footy game and put it into the oven about 4 1/2 hours before kick off. Turn the oven off as the game starts and the meat will be perfect by half time.
