Crock Pot Pernil

Pernil is a classic Puerto Rican slow roasted pork dish. This is my take on a not quite traditional yet full flavored Pernil made in the crock pot so as to be easier.

1 5 lb pork shoulder roast (with the skin is best)

2 small onions
3 tbs garlic, minced
2 tsp chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
2 tbs cilantro, dried
3 tbs lime juice
2 tbs apple cider vinegar
1 tsp seasoning salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Process all of the marinade ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
Rub all over the pork roast.
Cover and place in refrigerator overnight.
Place roast and all of the marinade in a crock pot.
Cook on low for 8 to 12 hours until the roast is fall apart tender and succulent.
