Directions Step-By-Step

1
Set the slow cooker in slow , use a liner and put the pork with the part down. Add salt and pepper and rub the meat.
2
In a blender , puree together the chipotle peppers ( I use the whole can , but my husband is mexican !! Choose 1 or 2 peppers !! ) , tomato puree and orange juice. Add the sugar and mix again. The spiciness level should be to your taste .
3
Pour over the pork , let cook for about 10 hs. ( I do it overnight) , it's ready when the meat falls from the bone.
4
Serve mexican style : "barbacoa" is served as a stew , in bowls ( meat and juices) , with chopped onion and cilantro to add on the plate.
You can also take the meat and served in soft, warm corn or flour tortillas as tacos.
5
You can also add some chicken or tomato bouillion ( about a cube ) to the chipotle mixture while blending , for extra flavor.
6
Enjoy !!
( You can always freeze the leftovers in bags !!)
