DIRECTIONS

  • Peel mangoes and remove pits. Place pits into a slow cooker, roughly chop the mango and set aside.
  • Place the pork shoulder in the slow cooker and season with salt and pepper and chipotle powder. Pour in balsamic vinegar and water.
  • Cover and cook on low 5-8 hours until the meat is very tender.
  • When done, drain the pork, discard the cooking liquid and pits and shred with two forks.
  • Sauce: Puree the chopped mango in a blender until smooth, then pour into a saucepan along with the honey, 1 tsp chipotle powder and bourbon. Bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring frequently until the mango has reduced and darkened slightly, about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in the barbecue sauce and remove from the heat.
  • Return the shredded pork to the slow cooker and stir in the mango barbecue sauce, covering and cooking on high for 1-2 hours until the pork absorbs the barbecue sauce.
