1 rolled-and-tied 3-lb. boneless pork-shoulder roast
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large chopped onion
2 minced garlic cloves
2 Anaheim chiles, seeded and chopped
2 poblanos, seeded and chopped
1 jalapeño, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper


Prep: 15 Minutes
Cook: 8 Hours

1. Season roast with salt and pepper. Warm vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook pork, turning often, until browned on all sides, about 15 minutes. Transfer to slow cooker.

2. Pour off all but 2 Tbsp. fat in skillet. Add chopped onion, minced garlic, and seeded and chopped Anaheim chiles, poblanos and jalapeño. Sauté until softened, about 5 minutes. Pour in chicken broth; bring to a boil, stirring to pick up browned bits. Stir in barbecue sauce and Dijon mustard. Pour over pork in slow cooker. Cover; cook on low until pork is very tender, 6 to 8 hours.

3. Transfer pork to a platter; cool. Skim fat from cooking liquid, transfer to a pan and cook over medium-high heat until reduced to 2 1/2 to 3 cups. Pull pork into shreds, discarding fat and gristle. Return pork to cooker, pour liquid over and stir. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
