Another Tuesday without a baseball game. What am I to do? After a month of having games every Tuesday, I am just lost! Not a problem to my kids. They just cruise. The smell of this roast was killing them all afternoon. "When's dinner?", "I'm hungry!", "How much longer?" Oh the complaints! Totally worth the wait!
The beauty of cooking in the crock pot is it does all the work! Toss that baby in the crockpot in the morning and it's ready for dinner. This roast is HUGE! I can definitely get two dinners out of it and lunch! With the leftovers, I will be able to make Pulled Pork Sandwiches.

In a small bowl, combine 1 TB Smoked Paprika
Yes I am using my palms as measuring spoons but have you really seen the size of my hands? Most kindergartens have bigger hands!
1TB garlic powder
1 TB Kosher Salt
1/4- 1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper
Come on! It won't be spicy! Unless you want it spicy, then add more!
1/2 TB Cumin
Now the fun part! Sprinkle spice mixture all over the roast. Make sure you get the counters too!
Toss that baby in the Crockpot.
Don't laugh at my Crockpot! I use her ALOT!
Don't add water! Promise you, the roast has enough fat that it wont be dry!
Cook on low all day or if you are late getting it in the Crockpot like I usually am, cook on high for four to five hours.
Take two forks and shred the meat. The meat just falls apart!
Spoon into your favorite tortillas or fry up shells (Tortured Teenagers favorite!) Add some Homemade salsa, shredded Cheese and some sour cream!
All this baby needs a Cervesa! Hey! Beer and Mexican food go hand in hand!
Are you a Crockpot chef?
