Slow Cooker Citrus-Chipotle Pulled Pork
You cannot go wrong with pulled pork in the slow cooker, but sometimes the options get a little…shall we say boring? So I was sitting around thinking about how I can spice things up a bit and bring a little zest and a new flavor profile to the classic pulled pork recipes.
I love citrus, and so I went with orange simply because it is one of those fruits that I always have in the fruit drawer in the fridge. And then I thought I wanted to add a bit of kick too, so I went with Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, which offers some spice and smokiness to the meat. And to round it out and add a touch of sweetness I went with bottled barbecue sauce. You just add it all to your crockpot, let it cook until the meat is “fork tender” and shred it up.
The kids had lemonade 🙂
