[Pulled Pork] [Coleslaw] [Rubs for Pork] [Exotic Rubs] [Spice Rubs] [Pork Marinades] [Sides] [Beans] [BBQ] [Spices] [Lee's Recipes]

Delicious. Put it on a sandwich, tacos or nachos. That's if you can resist just eating it by itself. This is a great weekend recipe, start in the morning and by dinner time you have something fantastic to eat.



2 onions, peeled and quartered
1 whole pork butt
Salt and pepper to taste
2 cans of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (7 oz. cans)
3/4 of a bottle of Dr. Pepper
4 tablespoons of brown sugar

Chipotle Dr. Pepper  Pulled Pork


Step 1: Preheat the oven to 300 degrees and then place the onions in the bottom of the heavy pan, such as a Le Creuset Dutch oven

Step 2: Trim the fat cap off of the pork butt and place on top of the onions, season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 3: Pour the chipotles over the pork butt,

Step 4: Pour in 3/4 of the bottle of Dr. Pepper into the pan, you want enough to cover 3/4 of the pork butt. It'll bubble up, but don't worry.

Step 5: Stir in the brown sugar, that'll get the bubbles to go down.

Step 6: Cover the pot and cook for at least 6 hours, flipping the butt 2-3 times (every 2 hours). Your house will smell wonderful, so make sure you have something to eat for lunch because the smell alone will make you hungry.

Step 7: When it's done, it's fork tender, it'll pull apart/be falling apart when you take it out of the oven.

Step 8: Remove the butt from the pot and shred with a fork.

Step 9: Strain/spoon the fat off the top of the sauce and then put in a blender (make sure you let this cool first) and blend, then pour back into the pot and add the meat. Stir. Eat. Enjoy.


Step 10: Eat it, try it on a roll, on nachos or in tacos. Have a drink handy and enjoy the nasal clearing. This is fantastic the next day for lunches!


The pork comes out sweet, with just a tingle of heat. You can taste a bit of the Dr. Pepper & brown sugar, but they've blended with the chipotles to create a warm heat that's nicely mellowed. Your lips will tingle just enough. You'll need to lean over your plate, these tacos turned out so juicy that you might end up wearing more taco then shirt if you aren't careful.
