Spicy & Sweet Pulled Pork

I made this spicy, sweet, delicious pork roast in the crock pot yesterday. Won. Der. Ful. We toasted up some hoagies, spread mayo on one side, sliced gouda on the other, and piled the pulled pork on high. It was so good.

It’s a Pioneer Woman recipe, too. Every time I pull her cookbook down, I’m so glad I did. Every recipe I’ve ever made of her’s is amazing! 

Spicy & Sweet Pulled Pork



1 small pork shoulder roast (I ask the butcher to cut one in half)

2 onions, chopped

4 cloves garlic, minced

salt and pepper

1 – 11 ounce can of chipotle chilies in adobo sauce

2- 12 ounce cans of Dr Pepper

4 TBS packed brown sugar

Place the onions and garlic in the bottom of the crock pot. 

Put in the roast.

Pour the can of chipotle chilies over the roast.

Pour the Dr Pepper over the chilies.

Add the brown sugar and give the liquid a little stir.

Cover and set the crock pot on high and allow to cook for 7-8 hours until fork tender.

Shred the roast and let it sit in the swampy sauce.

Pile it on hoagies, nachos, pizza, or taco shells.
