DIRECTIONS

  • To make the adobo sauce combine vinegar, limejuice, chipotles, garlic, cumin, oregano, black pepper, salt and cloves in a blender or processor on high speed until smooth.
  • Remove most of the fat from the roast and then cut into large chunks (approximately 6).
  • Pour oil into a frying pan and sear all sides of roast on medium-high heat until browned.
  • Place meat into Crockpot and pour adobo sauce over meat.
  • Pour in the chicken broth and add bay leaves.
  • Cook on high heat 6 hours or on low all day.
  • While still in the Crockpot, shred the meat with two forks and turn the heat to warm. Serve with hard or soft tortilla shells when ready.
  • Typical sides include tortillas, rice, black or pinto beans, cheese, pico de gallo, guacamole, and sour cream.
  • Don’t forget to make my 5 Minute Guacamole to go with it.
