Spicy Adobo Pork
5 pound pork loin or pork roast
1 large onion
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
2 cans Dr. Pepper
salt & pepper
Halve the onion and remove the outer skin. Slice the onion thinly and add to your slow cooker. Trim excess fat from the pork loin and sit the meat on top of the onions in the slow cooker. Sprinkle brown sugar on top of the pork and season with salt & pepper. Add the chipotle peppers and the sauce (if you like spicy, then add the whole can... but if you don't want the pork to be too spicy or if you're serving it to kids, just use half of the can). Pour in the Dr. Pepper and put the lid on. Cook for 4 hours on high or 6 to 7 hours on low until the pork is tender and pulls apart easily. Shred the pork with two forks (or I like to use a pair of kitchen shears to separate and cut the meat).
Pile a generous amount of pork onto a toasted roll (I found these fresh-baked onion rolls at my local market - yum!). Drizzle with your favorite bbq sauce. Enjoy!
