Transcript:How to Make Spicy Crock Pot Pulled Pork

Hi, I'm Chef William Richards for About.com. Here's an easy, spiced pork roast recipe that will melt in your mouth. What makes this recipe easy is that your crock pot will do most of the work.

Preparing to Make Spicy Crock Pot Pulled Pork

Start this recipe 8 to 10 hours before serving time. We'll be cooking a 3-pound roast, so make sure you have a crock pot to accommodate the size of your meat. You don't want your roast to stick to the sides of the pot. You'll also want enough room for the juices to flow and steam back into the meat to make your meal nice and juicy.

Spicy Crock Pot Pulled Pork Sauce Ingredients

Here are the ingredients you'll need for your sauce:
  • 1 cup of thick barbecue sauce; choose whatever flavor you fancy; if you like spicy, choose a hotter sauce
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 4-1/2 ounce cans of diced green chilies; if you want to turn up the heat even more, try canned jalapenos
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder for a moderately spiced result; for a spicier roast, add more chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro

Cooking the Spicy Crock Pot Pulled Pork

Take all your dry ingredients, including chili powder, cumin, oregano and cinnamon – and mix them all together. Next, add the barbecue sauce, onion and green chilies, and blend them all together. Save the cilantro for later. Take your pork roast and place into the crock pot, and pour the mixture all over the pork. Make sure some of the sauce flows under the roast. Set your crock pot to low, cover and cook for 8 to 10 hours. Before serving, check the temperature of the roast. It should be between 160 and 170 degrees. Remove the pork and turn the crock pot to high to reduce the liquid. Chop or shred the pork meat with a fork. Take your fresh cilantro and stir it into the sauce. Serve the roast as is or as a sandwich. Enjoy!
