Spiced Pork with Squash and Potatoes Crockpot Recipe

Ingredients needed:

* 1 pound of butternut squash, seeded, peeled, and cut into 1-inch pieces
* 1 pound of sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
* 1 tablespoon of olive oil
* 1/4 cup of packed brown sugar
* 1 teaspoon of salt
* 1 teaspoon of ground cumin
* 1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper
* 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
* 2 fresh poblano chile peppers, seeded and cut into bite-size strips (Tip: Chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. Wear plastic or rubber gloves)
* 2 small onions, cut into thin wedges
* 2 to 2 1/2 pound boneless pork shoulder roast
* 2/3 cup of chicken broth
* 1 tablespoon of snipped fresh Italian parsley (flat-leaf)

Preparation steps:

* In a large bowl, combine squash and sweet potatoes. Drizzle with oil; toss to coat.
* In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, salt, cumin, black pepper, cinnamon, and ginger. Sprinkle half of the spice mixture over squash mixture, tossing to coat. Reserve the remaining spice mixture. Transfer squash to crockpot. Stir in poblano peppers and onions.
* Trim fat from meat. Cut meat into 1-inch pieces. In the same large bowl, combine meat and the remaining spice mixture, tossing to coat. Add meat and broth to crockpot; stir to combine.
* Cover and cook on low 7 1/2 hours or on high for 3 1/2 hours.
* To serve, transfer meat mixture to a serving bowl.

Sprinkle with parsley and enjoy.
