Ingredients

  • 1 Boston butt pork roast (6 to 7 pounds), bone-in or boneless
  • 3 tablespoons Emeril's Southwest Essence
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons light-brown sugar
  • Coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chili pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Mexican oregano, crumbled

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Place pork roast in a large, shallow baking dish. In a small bowl, mix together Southwest Essence, brown sugar, 1 teaspoon salt, crushed red pepper, chipotle pepper, and oregano. Using your hands, rub spice blend evenly over pork. Loosely cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours and up to overnight.

  2. Step 2

    Transfer pork to a slow cooker. Cover and cook on high until tender and falling apart, about 8 hours, breaking into smaller pieces as it becomes more tender.

  3. Step 3

    Remove meat from crock pot and transfer to a large heatproof bowl, reserving juices in crock pot; remove excess fat and bones. Using 2 forks, shred meat. Add enough reserved cooking juices to keep meat moist; season with salt. Serve meat on nachos or on a toasted bun with your favorite barbecue sauce.

    I made this recipe. It was very good, but not very spicy. We topped it with coleslaw.

    I made this yesterday. I didn't serve it with nachos we had it on bakery sandwich buns. This is delicious! I sliced some avocado, tomato, and put out pepper picles and everyone raved. I highly recommend this recipe.
