Southwest Chipotle Pork Roast by Jackie

1 4-pound boneless pork loin roast
Tones Southwest Chipotle Seasoning (I buy this in a big bottle at Sam's Club.)

Pat pork dry with paper towel. Rub seasoning onto all surfaces of the pork roast. Place in Ziploc freezer bag.

Serving Day:
Thaw completely (this will take at least 24 hours).

Option 1: Place roast in slow cooker on low for 8-10 hours until meat thermometer reads 160 degrees. This is my preferred method because the meat comes out so tender. Don't be intimidated by not adding any liquid. The meat and condensation provide plenty of liquid.

Option 2: Place roast in a shallow pan and roast in a 350 degrees F. oven for about 1.5 hours (18-20 minutes per pound), until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 150 degrees F. Remove roast from oven; let rest until temperature reaches 160 degrees F., about 10 minutes before slicing to serve.

***Important*** Do not baste the meat with the juice unless you want it VERY spicy. The juice is HOT!

This made a TON of meat! I shredded the leftovers to use as taco meat in another meal.


  1. Our whole family L O V E D this!! We cooked it in the crockpot, and it smelled delicious all day long. Then I just pulled out chunks of meat and put it on everyone's plates. Leftover were awesome too - Make it again!! :)

  2. Our family really liked the flavor of this meat!

  3. I want to try this! Thanks for the recipe.

  4. Ok...let me say Micah was awsome and had this meal ready for the fam after a crazy day at (flu-filled) was wonderful!!BUT VERY-VERY HOT!!!We like spicy food but Micah dumped the juices from the crock pot over the cooked meat and it looked awsome!The kids started crying with burning mouths after just one bite and wouldn't eat anymore!!!SO...Just pull the meat out of your dish and save the juices for only the brave! There was so much and it was very flavorful so we added the leftovers to our bowls of cheddar potatoe soup and other dishes too.Fun times at the Steele house with this meal!!Thanks for a very yummy dish Jackie!!=>

  5. This was wonderful! It got thumbs-up all around. I used some of the juices and made gravy from it. It wasn't too hot, it was super yummy! Thanks for a great meal.
