*Preparing Pork for Your Favorite Wrap: Season a 1-1/2 lb. boneless pork roast with salt and pepper; brown on all sides in a hot nonstick skillet with a little olive oil. Add 1/2 cup chicken broth or water to pan, lower heat, cover tightly and simmer for 1-1/2 hours, until roast is very tender. Check pan occasionally for liquid level; if broth has evaporated, add a little more to pan to maintain a moist cooking environment. Remove roast from pan, let cool slightly and shred or chop pork coarsely. A 1-1/2 lb. roast will yield 4 cups of pork. Use immediately or cover and refrigerate up to 4 days, until ready to use. Serve cold or reheated.
