    This is a braised pulled pork that makes a great sandwich or use it for a tex-mex taco salad. Use an inexpensive cut of pork as it will cook until tender and it shreds easily with a fork.


    • 2-3 lb pork roast (shoulder, butt, or similar cut)
    • 3 Tb vegetable oil
    • 1 14oz can low sodium chicken broth
    • 1 small onion diced
    • 3 cloves garlic pressed
    • 3 Tb Ancho, New Mex, or other mild-medium heat pure ground chili powder...NOT chili powder blend
    • 1 Tb ground cumin
    • 1/2 ts kosher salt
    • 2 diced fresh jalapeno peppers (more or less to taste)


    1. Heat oil in an oven proof dutch oven and brown pork on all sides. The dutch.oven should be just large enough not to crowed the meat but not too large.
    2. Preheat oven to 350 deg F.
    3. In a bowel mix all other ingredients well and pour over the pork in the dutch oven to just cover the pork.
    4. Place the cover on the dutch oven and bake in the oven for 3-4 hours until the pork shreds easily. Check occasionally and add more chicken broth or water as necessary to keep the liquid level up.
    5. When the pork shreds easily, remove from the oven and shred with two forks.
