Chile-Citrus Slow Cooked Pulled Pork

I wanted to put something in the crock pot for last night's dinner, so I bought a pork butt. I had some small flour tortillas at home and thought that they needed to be filled with a shredded pork. So I picked up an onion, a bell pepper and a jalapeno and went searching for something to pour over all if it. I was at Target and went to the Mexican food aisle, where I saw all these different Archer Farms marinades and sauces. There was one called Chile Citrus Marinade and Grill Sauce and it seemed to be what I needed. The sauce has orange juice, roasted garlic and orange and lemon peel in it. The end result was perfect and my 13 year old nephew even liked it.

Chile-Citrus Slow Cooked Pulled Pork

1 3-lb boneless pork butt roast
1 Tbsp. olive oil
salt and pepper
1 onion, sliced
1 bell pepper, cut into strips
1 jalapeno, seeded and cut into strips
1 (12.5 oz) jar Archer Farms Chile Citrus Marinade and Grill Sauce

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Salt and pepper the roast on all sides and brown in skillet. Place the vegetables in the bottom of a crock pot; top with the browned roast and pour sauce over all. Cook on low for 7-9 hours.
Remove pork and shred using 2 forks. Return to crock pot and mix all together. Serve on tortillas or over rice. Top with fresh chopped cilantro and green onions.

I tried this yesterday, sans the Archer marinade. I kind of improvised with smoked paprika, lime juice, garlic, red pepper and chili powder.

Une que plato delicioso del cerdo!!!
