Pork Roast Recipe Chipotle

Updated on June 25, 2012

The aroma is wonderful! Ahhhh


Roast Pork Loin Sirloin


Non-stick spray

4-5 lbs. pork sirloin roast

½ onion

1-2 T. Chipotle powder

1 t. cumin

1-2 T. Onion powder

1-2 T. Garlic powder

2 T. kosher salt


Spray the inside of the slow cooker with the non-stick spray

Lay the sliced onions on the bottom of the slow cooker

Cut the pork sirloin roast in two equal pieces

Mix the spices together and rub all sides of both pieces of the meat with the rub

Place in the slow cooker on the onion slices.

DO NOT ADD WATER-- Oh, your every instinct says you MUST add water, surely, right?


The roast will make a rich lovely broth all by itself.

Set the slow cooker on high for one hour (Then go get ready to run errands or go to work)

After one hour turn the heat down to low

Let roast for six (6) hours Make sure your pork is cooked all the way through! This timing is extremely forgiving and may roast for up to 7 hours!

Remove from slow cooker after 6 hours, let rest and serve!

(NOTE: scrape and pour every ounce of the lovely liquid that the pork sirloin roast has made in the slow cooker and save with the left-over roast, as we will use this in a later recipe!)

You will get one fine meal for a small family and have plenty left to make enchiladas, pulled pork sandwiches, tacos, and maybe throw the end bits into a soup.

That is it.

It is good eating!

This succulent and fork tender roast pork loin sirloin is easy and will NOT heat up the kitchen.

The roast pork loin sirloin is cut from the tender and lean meat near the pig’s rump. Pork is a very important protein source in Mexican foods. It is one of the less expensive meats. More often than not, it is treated like a condiment and not served in big slabs. This dish begins out as a nice portion (slab if you will) of meat but then the left-overs create some wonderful New Mexican dishes that use meat more as a condiment. With our family of empty nesters, I can get two possibly three more meals out of this dish. Do remember after the first large portion of pork that I use the rest as I would a condiment.

Famous barbecue places rub the meat with their secret special mix of spices and slow roast the meat until it is pull-apart tender. This is what you can approximate in your kitchen while you are at work or running errands. The house will smell wonderful when you get back home and are tired and hungry!

The secret is that often disparaged marketed invention of the 1970s, the electric slow cooker. No wedding was complete in the seventies unless the hapless bride received at least two of these. It is a wonderful kitchen appliance for the working woman, though! So, dig down in the cupboard and dust off the avocado green electric Crock Pot (slow cooker) and make sure that it still works. You may have to purchase a brand new slow cooker. There are worlds of easy-peasey delicious meals that can be made in the slow cooker. Here we go!

!Es comer bueno! Good stuff!

      I've got the 6-quart Hamilton Beach slow cooker, and it's super easy to tote around because of the handles. A good recommendation for people looking for a cooker! Also, your recipe sounds great. Thanks & vote up.

      This is very good. We have an empty nest, too and having left over like this is very helpful.
