A low maintenance recipe that results in a high impact of taste and flavor!
For the rub:
In a medium bow combine all of the rub ingredients. With a sharp knife, score the roast in a criss cross fashion on both sides. This will allow more of the rub to flavor more of the meat and not just the fat. Rub mixture over the entire roast and place roast in a large slow cooker/crockpot. Set the bowl that you mixed the rub in aside for just a moment.
For the sauce:
Thinly slice the onion and set aside. Finely dice the jalapeno and set aside.
In the same bowl that you used for the rub (because who needs to wash more dishes?) combine the sauce ingredients including the onion and jalapeno. Depending on how spicy you want your pork to be, add in half or the entire diced jalapeno pepper. Pour the sauce mixture into the crockpot pouring it around the roast (try not to pour it over the top or else you will “rinse” away most of the rub).
Cook on high for 6 hours. Then, with two forks shred the pork in the slow cooker. Continue to cook for 3 more hours. As an alternative if you have the time, cook it on low (or overnight and all day). If you do this, cook for 10 hours, shred it and continue to cook for 6 more hours.
*I served mine as a burrito (well more like a taco because I had filled it with so much goodness) with brown cilantro rice, black beans, tomatoes, sliced avocado and cheese. Pure heaven! The next few days we ate it in yummy quesadillas with the leftover rice and beans.
Feel free to customize the toppings to your taste. I like my wrap with avocado, tomato and lettuce while my husband likes the chicken on a bun as a club sandwich. The real key to this recipe is the marinade.
