what you need
  • 1 pint water to cover
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • 8 black peppercorns
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless pork chops
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
make it
In a large saucepan, combine water, juice of one lime, thyme sprig, peppercorns, garlic powder, onion powder and salt. Bring mixture to a boil.

Add pork chops, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, until meat is very tender. Add more water as necessary to keep chops covered. Turn off heat and let the chops rest in the broth for 30 minutes. Remove chops from broth and shred, removing excess fat; set aside.

In a large frying pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the shredded pork and fry until it is almost crisp, about 5 minutes. Add the onion and garlic and continue to cook until the onion is just tender yet slightly crisp, about 10 minutes more. Add the juice of 1 lime, mix though and toss with cilantro. Serve and enjoy.
