Once you have shredded all of the pork, add about 3-4 tbsp of your cooking liquid and drizzle that over your pork making sure to coat all the pork a little bit.
Now sprinkle your brown sugar evenly over the pork and set aside.
start to slice your avocado and place in a bowl and then squeeze your lime over top to prevent browning and set aside.
In a medium pot over hight heat add your butter or olive oil and then add your rice.
