Pork Tacos and White/GreenSauce from family reunion, by Sandee

Pork Tacos
1 large Pork Roast
Brown the roast in a frying pan and then place in a large baking/roasting pan.In a blender place:
1 jalapeno pepper (cut seeds out)
1 onion
3 stalks celery
3 cloves garlic
1 cup water
1 tsp. chili pepper
1/2 tsp. cayene pepper
1/2 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 bunch cilantro
Blend the above ingredients in blender pour over the pork roast in the roasting pan.
Place 3 bay leaves and the other half of the cilantro on top of the roast/sauce.
Bake at 325 for 5 to 6 hours. (I cook my port roast in a large crock pot that I have. I cook it on low for 8-10 hours.)
When done cooking throw the cilantro and bay leaves away.
Take the meat out of the pan and "pull" the pork apart.
It will be very tender and easy to pull.
Mix with the meat 2 jars or cans of Herdez Salsa Verde sauce.
Serve with corn tortilla shells and shedded cabbage, cut limes and white sauce/green sauce.

White sauce/green sauce
2 cups of mayonaise
1 clove of garlic
1/2 bunch of cilantro
2 TBSP water
2 TBSP white vinegar
1 jalapeno pepper (cut seeds out)
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
Blend in blender. (I doubled the recipe for the family reunion)
