You guys. This chipotle coffee pulled pork recipe is so easy and so good! I saw something on Pinterest but it had like 20 ingredients and was zero paleo. How do you replace pop in a recipe?! No clue but I won’t touch the stuff. As I perused the grocery aisles, I threw in a pork shoulder without exactly knowing what I was going to do with it. This is very unlike me. I shop with a fairly strict grocery list of items I need to create specific recipes along with every day needs such a fruit and eggs.
As I brewed my coffee, I thought why not put a little coffee in there. Basically I added ingredients I believed would taste good together. At some point after creating more than 100 recipes I’ve learned to trust my instinct. I am so glad I did. This chipotle coffee pulled pork came out a complete winner! Not to mention it was so easy to make since I threw it in my crockpot. I just love my crockpot. Saves me clean up and makes tasty recipes. If you don’t have one, you should go pick one up. I got mine for $30 from Target almost 4 years ago, and it still works magically. This chipotle coffee pulled pork is amazing with white potatoes, but if you don’t eat those I think it would also taste great with cauli-mash!
