Spicy Honey Lime Pork Roast

Spicy Honey Lime Pork Roast - get the recipe at
Spicy Honey Lime Pork Roast is a little bit spicy and a little bit sweet, with just a hint of citrus. This pulled pork is a fun change from our usual herb rubbed pork roast, the meal that has been my go-to pork main dish for several years. An oven pork roast is always delicious, but there are times when I simply prefer the ease of a crock-pot roast for busy nights.

I've made this Spicy Honey Lime Pork Roast a couple times now and I absolutely love it. The flavors are subtle and that makes this a really versatile main dish. I've served this pork straight out of the crock-pot with mashed potatoes and vegetables. I've melted it into some of the best grilled cheese sandwiches I've ever tasted, wrapped it in a tortilla, and then stashed the very last serving away to make a quick breakfast hash.

Spicy Honey Lime Pork Roast
Yield: 8 servings
(printable recipe)

1 1/2 pound sirloin pork roast
3-4 minced chipotle peppers, about 1-2 tablespoons worth
1 tablespoon adobo sauce from the can of chipotle peppers
1/4 cup fresh lime juice, about 2 medium limes worth
1/3 cup honey
2 large garlic cloves, minced

Rinse and pat dry the pork roast. Place in the slow cooker. Stir together the remaining ingredients and pour over the roast. Cover and cook on LOW heat for 6-7 hours, until the meat can be pulled apart with tongs. Toss the pieces of meat in the juices in the crock-pot. Enjoy!
