Heat oil in a large skillet. Sprinkle pork loin generously with salt and pepper. Sear roast on all sides in the hot oil. Remove to crock pot. Add 1/2 cup onion to the pan and saute until clear and starting to brown around the edges. Stir in spices. Remove from heat. Layer lime slices over pork roast and cover with onion mixture. Place lid securely and turn heat to high for first 30 minutes. Reduce heat to low and cook 8 to 10 hours. Remove from pot and shred. Place 1/4 cup pork onto tortilla. Top with additional chopped onion and cilantro.

Tips: This was a great crock pot meal that you can turn into something other than just a piece of meat. Once the meat is shredded you can stir in a little of the extra juices to add some moisture back into the meat. These reminded me of some of the great little tacos you get on the streets in Mexico. I also shared this recipe at A Southern Fairytale's Mouthwatering Monday.
