1 tablespoon whole coriander seeds

1 tablespoon whole white peppercorns

2 tablespoons sea salt

1 tablespoon ground ancho chile pepper

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

One 4-pound Boston butt pork roast

1 cup beef stock

1 onion, thinly sliced

6 to 8 hamburger buns

Pickle spear, optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. In a small skillet, combine the coriander seeds and peppercorns. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until fragrant and toasted, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool. In a coffee grinder, process the spices until finely ground.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the peppercorn mixture, salt, ancho chile pepper, cinnamon and cocoa. Rub the spice mixture evenly over the pork roast.
  4. In a Dutch oven, combine the beef stock and onions. Add the roast to the Dutch oven. Cover and bake until very tender, about 3 hours.
  5. Using two forks, shred the roast. Serve on buns with pickle spears if desired.
