5-7 lbs Pork Butt – cut into 2” cubes
1 Tbs Corn Oil
2 Tbs Smoked Paprika
1 Tbs Oregano
1 Tbs Kosher Salt
1 tsp Cumin
1/2 Medium Onion - Chopped
1 Clove Garlic – peeled & smashed
1 Tbs Chipotle Sauce (you can substitute 1 whole Jalapeno)
2 – 3 12oz Beer (
or lite beers give best flavor) Corona
1 Bay Leaf
Add oil to a large 8Qt Stockpot over medium heat, then add in the cubed Pork. Brown for approximately 4 minutes until the pork is browned on all sides. Combine the rest of the ingredients stirring in enough beer to cover the pork by 1/2”. Cover and let cook for 1hr 45min, stirring occasionally. If the liquid level drops, stir in more beer or water. The pork will be fork tender when done. Adjust seasoning and remove the Bay Leaf. Serve over rice or alone with freshly squeezed Lime (or Lemon) juice and hot Tortillas!
* If cooking in a crockpot first brown the cubed Pork in a pan then transfer to the pot. Follow directions and cook at med-high for 4-6 hours depending on crockpot.
