Ingredients

  • 1½ Teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 Teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 ½ Teaspoon salt
  • ½ Teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ Teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 boneless pork butt or shoulder roast, trimmed

Directions

Rub the meat with the chili powder, paprika, cumin, cayenne, and salt.

Place the onions and garlic in a slow cooker. Place the meat on top of the onions. Combine the vinegar maple syrup and tomato paste in a small bowl. Pour over the meat. Cover the slow cooker; cook over low heat until the meat is very tender, 8 hours.

Maple Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Maple Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
