round 2 shredded pork roast with cucumber raita sauce

i had made pulled pork for pulled pork sandwiches and had alot so before i added the bbq sauce for the sandwiches i set some to to the side for this round 2 meal which was inspired by Cookin Canuck Spicy Shredded Pork Roast with Cucumber Riata Sauce.. i changed it a bit to suit what i had on hand :)




prep time: 20 minutes
cooking time: 20 minutes
servings: 4
ingredients:

2 cups cooked shredded pork
1 onions, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp. oil
1 tsp. cumin
2 cloves
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. smokey paprika
salt and pepper to taste
1 table spoon beef broth

raita:
1 cup plain greek yogurt
1 medium cucumber, seeded and chopped
juice from 1/2 of a lemon
2 tsp. lemon zest
salt and pepper

4 slices of nan bread, cut into wedges
sliced tomatoes
sliced cucumbers
mango chutney (optional)
fresh chopped cilantro

heat oil over medium heat and add onions and garlic for 3-5 minutes until tender.  add spices and let cook in oil for about 30-45 seconds. then add the pork cook for about 5 minutes you want the ends to get kinda crispy and carmelized.  add beef broth and turn heat down to simmer for about 10-15 minutes you want it all heated through.  if it starts to try out add a little more beef broth or water.

raita:

in a medium bowl stir together yogurt, cucumber, lemon and spices.  cover and rerigerate until ready to use.  left overs are awesome on pita chips.

how i served it was the shredded pork on the warm nan bread with sciced cucumbers, mango chutney, cilatro and raita.. super yummy.
