Pulled Pork

Ingrdients

  • 3 dried chili negros; seeds removed (this sauce is pretty spicy w/o the seeds)
  • 1 bunch green onion
  • 8oz chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 6 cups water and chicken & beef boullion or 3 cups chicken broth & 3 cups beef broth
  • 1.5 tablespoon diced garlic
  • Fresh ground pepper to taste
  • Cocoa powder
  • Citrus juice (I used lemon and it was good but lime would be better. Orange might be good as well)
  • Sprinkle dried rosemary
  • Pork sirloin; I used a 1.7lb cut

Steps

  • Chop green onion and reserve tops as garnish
  • Rough chop cleaned dried peppers
  • If using buoullion:
    • Add 6 cups water to pot
    • Add 3 cups worth of chicken and 3 cups worth of beef boullion.
  • If using broth just add it to the pot
  • Throw everything in the pot on low.
  • Add cocoa powder a teaspoon or two at a time unitl you can just taste it.
  • Add citrus to taste.
  • Let simmer until the dried pepper are softened
  • Get out the boat motor aka immersion blender.
  • Let it simmer for like 10 more minutes just so everythig get to know each other.
  • Put the pork in a slow cooker and submerge in marinade.
  • Let it go for at least 6 hours.
  • Rip it up with a fork; add a cup or so of marinade at a time for flavor until it's nice and covered and mixed in.
  • I also added the remainder of the marinade to the cheese sauce once I mixed it all together. REally enhanced the flavor

NOTE: I didn't add any salt to the recipe with the exception of the salt to the pasta water. I felt like it didn't need any extra but you do you. Defintely don't add salt until the very end right before it goes in the oven.
