Ingredients

1 Chipotle peppers, in Adobo sauce 20 g
1/3 cup honey 120 g
3 tbsp limejuice, freshly squeezed 1 1/2 lime
2 tsp paprika 6 g
cayenne pepper 0.1 g
1 tsp ground cumin 3 g
1 tsp dried oregano 1 g
2 pork tenderloin 600 g

Before you start

A slow cooker is needed to make this recipe.

Method

  1. Coarsely chop the chipotle pepper then put it in a small bowl with about 1 teaspoon of the adobo sauce. Stir in the honey and lime juice. Cook in a microwave oven at maximum power about 30 sec until the mixture is uniformly warmed and blended.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the spices and oregano, then use this mixture to coat the tenderloins. Put them in the bottom of the ceramic cooking pot and pour the honey mixture on top.
  3. Cover the slow cooker with the lid and cook on 'low' for 6-8 h, or until the meat is tender enough to be "pulled" apart easily with a fork. Alternatively, cook on high for 4-5 h.
  4. Please note that there is no need to add salt. Serve the meat with its cooking juices.

Remarks

As is often the case with slow cooking, this dish is at its best when it is reheated.

Chipotle keeps several months in either the fridge or the freezer.

The meat was very flavourful, but it was quite dry. Maybe it would be better with another cut of pork??? Any idea how long chipotles keep in the fridge after opening? Not sure what else to make with them...
