Crock-Pot Sweet and Spicy Pork Shoulder


The men in my life LOVE pork. It is no secret it isn't my favorite, but I always aim to please. My husband and I were picking up some groceries after church on Sunday and I was upset because there was no fresh caught fish to be found. I guess the fishermen deserve a day off too. So he said; "It has been a while since you made pork". So I told him to go ahead and pick out some and I will make it for him. He settled on some nice fresh cuts. We had gone to the early service so I had all day to figure out what to make him. Days like these are my favorite. I decided to make some Sweet and Spicy Pork served over steamed Jasmine rice. 
It was a big hit. Sorry the pictures stink. I figure some pictures are better than no pictures. It was 6:30pm and dark by the time they were ready. So it is what it is.
