  • 1 Pork Butt/Shoulder Roast
  • 2 T Cumin
  • 1 T Chili Powder
  • 1/2-1 T Cayenne Pepper depending on how spicy you want it
  • 3/4 T Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Ground Cloves
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 1 T Salt
  • Vegetable Oil


  • Trim roast and slice into 1/4 inch thick pieces. Put directly into crock pot (or baking pan). I hate eating gristle and fat so trim, trim, trim!
  • Combine spices and toss into crock pot (or baking pan).
  • Add enough vegetable oil to cover meat. Yes, it is a lot of oil, but fear not. If you skimp you won't get the same results.
  • Toss together using hands until evenly coated with spice and oil goodness.
  • For crock pot, cook on low setting for 8 hours. If baking, cook at 350 for 2 hours.
