Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican-Style Pork

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican-Style Pork
  • 1 (4 pound) boneless pork loin roast, trimmed of fat
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 1/4 cups diced green chile pepper
  • 1 (5 ounce) bottle hot pepper sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups water, or as needed


  1. Season pork roast with salt and ground black pepper on all sides.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook roast in hot oil until browned, 3 to 5 minutes per side; transfer to a slow cooker.
  3. Top roast with chopped onion, chile pepper, hot pepper sauce, chili powder, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder. Pour enough water into the slow cooker to come 1/3 the way up the sides of the roast.
  4. Cook on High for 6 hours, adding more water if mixture becomes too dry. Reduce heat to Low and cook until meat is tender and falling apart, 2 to 4 hours more. Transfer roast to a bowl and shred meat using two forks. Return meat to slow cooker with 2 cups cooking liquid.
