Packaged BBQ sauces tend to have a lot of preservatives and or sugar. So, I wanted to create something similar to a BBQ sauce/marinade. But, without all the extra junk. Usually, I use Coconut Oil with this recipe. I replaced it with Avocado Oil for this time to test the marinade out as I really wanted all the flavors of the spices to come out.

Avocado Oil is so clean tasting that it allows you to really taste whatever you are using it on and/or the spices used. Feel free to substitute with Coconut Oil, though. I alternate.

If using it to cook, in pressure pot add, or slow cooker. I add, 1 jalapeno, 1/4 a white onion cut in wedges and about 1/4 cup of water.

Once ready, shred the meat add another portion of the recipe below. Mix in and cook for 10 more minutes in a pressure cooker. I'm not sure of the times for a traditional slow cooker. My best guess would be a couple hours before it's fully ready.

Most importantly, ENJOYYY and Happy Mothers Day weekend!
