Ok Ladies and Gentlemen, here's my recipe... Please know that I don't measure very much, but these are the ingredients and the approximate amounts.

Submitted by Lyn Boehme

Ingredients

  • 4 Teaspoons Salt
  • 4 Teaspoons Garlic powder
  • 4 Teaspoons Ground cumin
  • 2 Teaspoons Crumbled dried oregano
  • 2 Teaspoons Ground coriander
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground cinnamon
  • 4 Pounds Boneless pork shoulder roast
  • 6 Bay leaves
  • 2 Cups Chicken broth

Directions

  1. Step One

    I mixed all the dry ingredients (except bay leaves) together to make a rub and rubbed it all over the pork.

  2. Step Two

    I even stuck a few holes in the pork with a fork and massaged it in the pork to ensure the flavor would be all through the meat rather than just on the outside.

  3. Step Three

    I put it in the fridge overnight to make sure the pork had time to absorb the flavor of all the yummy goodness.

  4. Step Four

    The next morning, I put the bay leaves at the bottom of the slow cooker and placed the pork on top of the bay leaves.

  5. Step Five

    I carefully poured the chicken broth around the pork making sure to not rinse off any of the rub. I covered it and let it cook for about 9 hours. It literally fell apart!

    Loved this! I didn’t marinate over night and still thought it came out great. After slow cooking, I shredded and put the meat in a lightly oiled pan and fried a little to make it crispy on edges. Everyone loved it. Thank you

    Great recipe! Made 1 minor change to reduce the chicken broth and added a bit of orange juice – about 1/4 cup.
