Fall 2016 #3…Chipotle Pork Sandwiches

Dinner today was an experiment and it was a great tasting experiment!  So I did not have any roasts in my freezer but I did have ribs…so I followed the recipe but subbed the ribs for the roast…I used our Onion Onion instead of sliced onions and did not add the peppers.  I cooked some pasta al a dente and added it the last half hour…this was so delicious…a little on the spicy side but give it a try!!  Enjoy!!

Chipotle Pork Sandwiches

2½ pounds pork shoulder or arm roast, cut into 4 pieces
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 poblano pepper or green bell pepper, sliced
1 medium onion, sliced
1 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
¾ cup ketchup
1 packet Chipotle Pulled Pork Slow-Cooker Sauce Mix
4 hoagie buns
4 slices pepper jack or Monterey jack cheese

Place roast, peppers and onions in a 4-quart or larger slow cooker.
In small bowl, combine chicken broth, ketchup and Chipotle Pulled Pork Slow-Cooker Sauce Mix. Pour over roast.
