Pulled Pork Taco's & Spanish Rice

Here is a low-cost and fairly easy to prepare recipe. It cost approx $3 per person (assuming like Bella, you only have to run out and buy the meat, seasoning, rice and veggies). If you had to buy everything, it would increase to $5, still cheaper than a restaurant.

-Pulled Pork Taco's & Spanish Fried Rice -

1.8 lbs pork shoulder roast
(the pkt says 3 lbs but I find 1.8lbs is plenty for a family of 4)
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1 onion (roughly chopped)
1 red bell pepper ( finally chopped)
1 pkt McCormick Pulled Pork Seasoning
1 pkt Old El Paso Spanish rice (215g)
1 tsp Butter
3 cups of water

Place Pork in slow cooker.
Mix the seasoning, ketchup, brown sugar and vinegar. Pour over pork.
Add the onion and pepper.
Cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours.
Shred pork and return to slow cooker to heat before serving.

30 minutes before pork is ready prepare the rice as per the instructions on the packet.
Serve with Tortillas and Salsa if desired. Bella serves everything with tortillas and salsa.
