Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 whole onions -- peeled and quartered
1 whole pork shoulder, butt, R-T-C -- OR 1 pork loin
salt and pepper -- To taste
11 ounces Chipotle chile canned in adobo
2 cans soda pop -- Pepsi or Dr. Pepper
4 tablespoons brown sugar -- packed
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
Start by placing the onion quarters in the bottom of a pot. Sprinkle the pork with salt and pepper, and then place on top of the onions. Pour the chipotle peppers over the top, and then crack open the cans of pop and pour them over the whole thing. Add the brown sugar to the liquid and stir.
Cover the pot, put in the oven and cook for at least 6 hours, flipping the roast 2 or 3 times during the cooking process. When it's done, the pork will be dark and weird and wonderful. It'll also be fork-tender. That's when you know it's done.
Remove the meat from the pot and shred completely. Then return the meat to the pot and keep in the juice until you need it. Divine!
