Sweet Pork Fajitas

Another fantastic pork loin recipe! I just throw all the ingredients into the crock pot and dinner is ready when I get home.
Sweet-Pork-Ingredients
You'll Need
1 pork loin
1 can "Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce"
1 can pineapple chunks
1 liter Coke (don't use Diet Coke)
1 1/2 C sugar
1 tsp crushed garlic
1 tsp ground mustard
1/2 tsp ground cumin

Instructions
1. Strain the peppers over your crock pot by pouring the Coke over the peppers while they're in a strainer. (You only want the sauce the peppers have been canned with) Trust me, you don't want to just dump the entire can of chipolte peppers into the crock pot. The heat will kill you. But, if you're very brave, leave one of the pepper in the pot. But only if you're very brave and have a tongue of steel.

2. Now add the sugar, garlic, mustard, cumin, pineapple

3. Add the pork loin

4. Let it cook on high for about 6 hours. (or low for 8-10)

5. Pull the loin apart with forks (you might have to remove it from the pot to do so) and then let it simmer a bit longer in the crock pot to soak up the juices.

6. You'll want to strain him before serving.. FYI

Goes great with:

Warm Tortillas
Roasted Red Pepper
Sauteed Onions
Sour Cream
Peach Mango Salsa (THE BEST!!)
Shredded Colby Jack Cheese
Olives
Lettuce

This looks really good. I have a recipe for Pineapple salsa that would go GREAT with this. I'll post it a little later.
