  • 4-5 pound chuck roast
  • 1/3 cup apple cider viengar
  • 4 teaspoons minced garlic cloves
  • 4 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 3-4 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 3 bay leaves

Use a blender or food processor on high speed to combine vinegar, garlic, cumin, oregano, black pepper, salt, cloves, lime juice, and chipotle peppers.

If you have time, is it worth cutting the roast into 6-8 chunks and searing all sides in a pan with oil heated to medium high.

Place roast pieces in crockpot. Pour sauce and chicken broth over roast. Add bay leaves and cook on high for 6 hours or low for 12 hours. Remove excess fat and bay leaves. Shred before serving.
