Recipe Ingredients for Brown Sugar Chipotle Roast Pork

3 pounds Boneless Pork Shoulder Roast
0.67 cups Brown Sugar, Packed
1 teaspoon Seasoned Salt
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
3/4 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
7 oz Chipotle Peppers In Adobo Sauce (7 Ounce Can)
1 cup Water

Recipe Directions for Brown Sugar Chipotle Roast Pork

  1. Spray liner of slow cooker with non stick cooking spray. Slice roast about 3/4 of the way through (leave the bottom 1 1/2″ intact) every 3/4″ so that the slices fall open, but are still connected on the bottom.

  2. In a small bowl combine the brown sugar and spices. Mix well to create a dry rub. Press this rub onto all surfaces of the pork roast. Really get it into the nooks and crevices to coat well. Place the roast in the slow cooker.

  3. In a blender or food processor, blend the chipotle peppers & adobo sauce to create a thick sauce. Spoon about 1/3 (or more, depending on your heat tolerance) of this sauce all over the pork roast. Again make sure to hit all of those nooks & crannies!

  4. Pour the water into the bottom of the cooker, being careful not to rinse all of the glorious seasoning off the meat.

  5. Cover the slow cooker, and cook on high for six hours. When the meat is done, it will pull apart easily with two forks.

  6. This meat can be shredded, pulled-pork style, and used for sandwiches, over mashed potatoes (pass those pan juices!), or used in tacos, burritos, nachos, enchiladas, quesadillas. It would be AMAZING in some posole soup!
