Lime Chipotle Pulled Pork with Chipotle Mustard Potatoes

Recently, I was contacted by Saucy Mama about entering a recipe in a cooking contest they are hosting. Other than the Foodie Joust & Iron Cupcake, I've never entered a recipe in a cooking contest so I thought why not plus there were some great prizes including a Kindle. They sent me a lovely assortment of their marinades, dressings & sauces to play with. I have to say we were impressed to see the ingredients in all of there products, it was all things we recognized instead of a bunch of chemicals. We were most drawn to the Lime Chipotle Marinade & it made me think of the Caribbean & then I thought of pork...pulled pork.
#207 - Chipotle Lime Pulled Pork
Saucy Mama was looking for recipes that were quick & easy for a family to prepare. Well, you can't get much easier than cooking in a crock pot. Throw everything in, walk away & hours later dinner is done. As for quick the hands on time on this recipe is no more than 10 minutes.
Chipotle Lime Pulled Pork
This made for such a tasty sandwich! Just a hint of spice (the perfect amount for a wimp like me) & a freshness from the lime. The meat was super juicy. I liked mine just plain on a roll while Matt topped his with some coleslaw & a slather of Saucy Mama's Chipotle Mustard for an extra kick. For a quick side dish we roasted some potatoes with the Chipotle Mustard. They got crispy & had a gorgeous color. Everything was served up with some steamed beans for a really easy statisfying meal.

Want to try making this dish yourself? Well I have four bottles of Saucy Mama's Lime Chipotle Marinade to give away. Leave a comment on this post & I'll pick four random winners on Thursday, August 13th. Please leave your email address in your comment so I can contact you. if you win! Sorry, I can only ship to the US and Canada.

Pulled of foods best gifts to the belly. I could eat 3 of these sandwiches (then wear elastic pants).

Rose said...

Oooh, I could have used this recipe and the sauce yesterday! We had chopped pork sandwiches and roasted potato salad with mustard dressing.

Mhhmmm... lime & chipotle... some of my favorite flavors! the meal sounds delicious!

DLAOKC said...

Lime and chipotle is a killer combination...

Unknown said...

Yum! This looks so good. I tend to use the crock pot more in the fall/winter, but I should use it more this time of year because it doesn't heat up the kitchen, and you still get those wonderful aromas.

Kim M said...

Sounds fabulous!

grace said...

it seems that i'm currently obsessed with lime, and this is a truly unique and fantastic application for it! the pig looks excellent, and the taters ain't too shabby either!

Rebecca J said...

What an easy and delicious sandwich! I agree that pulled pork is one of those miracle dishes that always tastes good without much effort.

Jude said...

Hey Kathie--We don't get Saucy Mama here in the boondocks of Florida--use crockpot a lot and would love to try your recipe. I could even pick it up when I come to Minneapolis and save you the postage. Judy

David J. Whelan said...

I like! Must try! And, by try, I mean ask my wife to try. Or maybe I can surprise her....

Lori said...

That marinade sounds like a winner and the sandwiches couldn't look better. I love pulled pork like that, nice and lean. Glad to hear about those ingredients. I will keep my eye out for this one. Just caught those Milan cookies as well. Those may be making an appearance on my Christmas cookie list this year. Yum!

Yum. I'll have to try and find some of that marinade!

Christina Kim said...

I really need a crock-pot! There is nothing like a good moist pulled pork, and what could be better than pulled pork with a spicy southwestern-y kick!

Mary D. said...

Love this great way to make the pork!

Jeff said...
