Slow Cooker Lechon Asado (Cuban Pork) and Yellow Rice

Going to college in South Florida, I learned to LOVE cuban food. One of the regular parts of my diet became Lechon Asado with yellow rice. A juicy, tender pork seasoned with citrus and garlic. The slow cooker is a great way to cook it unattended. For a more authentic texture and flavor, sauté the meat after removing it from the slow cooker.  A great Gluten Free and Wheat Free meal.

The rickness of the pork is broken up a bit by the citrus, and the spices help round out the flavor.  The mixture has always been perfect.  I always eat it with cuban bread or tortillas as well.
