This recipe i found when i was browsing online , it’s one of those days when you don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen because you’re busy doing something else . And in my defense it is because i was being crafty that day , and i was too busy producing a beanie per day for fall and winter accessories . But anyway this recipe is so awesome , so yummy , surprisingly easy , but not quick . It is delicious , but it’s not a quick meal . I had to cook this at least 5 hours , it depends how big your meat is . The pork shoulder ( one of my favorite ) , is really versatile , and they’re so delicious , but the key is to cook them long and slow , and you will be rewarded with tender and juicy meat .
And did i mention it will be spicy ? Well from the name , Chipotle , it tells you that it will be spicy . I think you guys can handle it , my son who is only 9 years old thinks that this dish isn’t spicy . But then again sometimes when it’s not spicy he said it’s spicy . His taste buds is a bit messed up i guess LOL If you don’t like spicy stuff i suggest just used 1 pepper from the can . I used chipotle in adobo sauce and they can get really spicy , the heat builds up on you , not spicy in the first bite , then warmer second bite , and it will get warmer and warmer and eventually you’ll agree .. this is hot .
So here it is :
4-5 lbs of pork butt / pork shoulder , rinse , then salt pepper the pork all over
1 large onion , quartered
24 oz dr. pepper , or you can use coke .. i don’t see why not
11 oz can chipotle in adobo sauce
3 heaping tbsp. of brown sugar
1. Lay the onion on the bottom of dutch oven , place the pork on top , pour the soda in , add in the chipotle along with the sauce , use 1 if you don’t like spicy . Add in the brown sugar . Cover the lid tightly , then throw them in the oven 300 F , cook for 5-6 hours . Turn the meat 2-3 times during cooking time .
2. After 5-6 hours , the pork should be super tender where u can just use fork to pull it apart . Serve with rice , or on taco shells , or with texas toasts , etc
