Saucy Chipotle Barbecue Pork


This was one of the best BBQ pork recipes I have every made.  The chipotle gave just enough 'smoky' taste to make you think it was done in a smoker.  Try this soon!
Saucy Chipotle Barbecue Pork
Southern Living Slow Cooker Cookbook

2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 (4 to 5 pound) boneless pork butt roast, cut in half (Any pork roast will work)
2 tablespoons butter
1 large onion, chopped (2 1/2 cups)
1 (18 ounce) bottle spicy original barbecue sauce
1 (12 ounce) bottle Baja chipotle marinade (Lawry's) ***Beth used a home made recipe found here
Garnish: sliced green onions

Rub first 3 ingredients evenly over pork. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add pork; cook 10 minutes or until browned on all sides.

Place onion and pork in a 5 quart slow cooker. Add barbecue sauce and marinade.

Cover and cook on high 7 hours or until pork is tender and shreds easily. Beth cooked this on high for 1 1/2 hours and then on low for 5-6 hours.  I think 8-10 on low would be perfect.

Remove pork to a large bowl, reserving sauce; shred pork. Stir shredded pork into sauce. Serve as is, over a cheese-topped baked potato, in a sandwich, or over a green salad. Garnish, if desired. Makes 8 servings.
