      This was my first time cooking pork shoulder and I'm glad I chose this recipe! It was juicy, saucy and spicy, just what I wanted to cook. The only changes I made was that I added canned chipotle in adobo sauce because I couldn't find dried chipotle. I added 3 peppers and it gave the sauce a spicy kick. I also added a can of diced tomatoes with the liquid. The roast turned out tender and almost fell apart. It was delicious. I served it with the sauce and plated it with tortillas, beans and rice. Thanks for the great recipe!

      Wonderfull pork!! Tender and moist and delicious. I also simmered down the sauce, loved the taste, served the sauce over mashed potatoes with slices of the roast and a side of broccoli and carrots. We really loved the spice mix with the chipoltie and we will make this one again, thanks for sharing. Going to use the leftover with slices of pork in a bun with the sauce over it, mmm my mouth is watering thinking of it. A real keeper of a recipe!!

      This was really, really, REALLY good! We pureed the braising liquid (after picking out the whole spices) and it made a wonderful sauce for the meat. We had it with some brown rice to soak up the sauce and a salad with grapes and avocado, dressed with Mexican Low Fat Citrus Salad Dressing. Looking forward to making tacos tomorrow with some of the leftover meat and Mexican cole slaw.
