Serves: 8-10

Prep time: 30 minutes

Cook time: 8 hrs 15 min

  • 1 pork tenderloin

  • 2 chili peppers in adobo sauce

  • 1 can beer

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 5 cloves garlic, still attached

Chipotle Pork Bread Boat

  • 1 loaf french bread

  • 2 ½ cups pulled pork (1 tenderloin)

  • 4 ounces cream cheese

  • ⅔ cup plain greek yogurt or sour cream

  • 3 chili peppers in adobo sauce, diced

  • ½ cup chopped green onions

  • 1 cup cheese, shredded

  • ¼ cup parsley, for topping

Tangy Yogurt Sauce

  • ⅓ cup plain greek yogurt or sour cream

  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vinegar

Garlic Parmesan Butter

  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter

  • ¼ cup fresh parsley

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 3 tablespoons grated parmesan

  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  1. To make the pulled pork, combine the chilies, beer, brown sugar, and salt in a slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours. To pull the pork, use two forks or a stand mixer to pull the pork apart.

  2. Preheat your oven to 350°F.

  3. In a medium bowl, add the pulled pork, cream cheese, yogurt, chilies and adobo sauce, half the green onions, and crushed garlic from the slow cooker. Mix to combine.

  4. Cutting around the top edges of the bread loaf and leaving about an inch around the edges, cut ⅔ to ¾ to the bottom of the loaf, leaving a good bit of bread still in the middle (pictured below). Slice into the edges of the bread about every inch to 2 inches to make small slices of bread still attached.

  5. Fill the inside of the bread loaf with the pork filling. 

  6. In a small bowl, mix the garlic parmesan butter. Then, brush the garlic parmesan butter over the exposed crust of the loaf.

  7. Sprinkle the shredded cheese over top and place in the oven to cook for 15 minutes or until the bread is toasted and cheese is melted. If you’d like to get the cheese a bit more melty, turn on your broil for 2-3 minutes.

  8. Before serving, drizzle with the tangy yogurt sauce over the bread boat and sprinkle with the remaining parsley and chopped green onions.
