Have a Manwich Monday With Our Easy Coffee-Rubbed Manwich Pulled Pork Latin Style Tapas

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Manwich for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Mommin ain't easy, especially if you have teens at home. Yes, they are more independent at this stage but they still need you as much as when they were little. Monday is the “less-thrilling” day of the week at home mainly because it represents that the weekend is over and a full week of work awaits us. However, science says Monday is the day that statistically people tend to change something about themselves. On Monday's we are more likely to consider (or actually start) something new like trying a new recipe, tackle a new home project, or finally sign up for that gym membership you have been contemplating for weeks. 

Manwich Monday is a great way for you to start your week, with a tasty, easy-to-make family meal around the dinner table! Manwich is a hearty sauce with a sweet and tangy taste and it also has the kid-stopping power, as your children will need both hands to enjoy this messy-licious treat, keeping them away from video games or texting! Manwich is a great, easy, quality ingredient that you can use to bring your family’s attention back to mealtime and away from the everyday distractions. Plus, there is not meat in Manwich!

Today I'm starting my #ManwichMonday with a great recipe to calm hungry tummies after school. Is a coffee-rubbed Latin-style Manwich pulled pork over guacamole on a fried plantain. We are Puertoricans so we love our plantains...

The Kid-Stopping Power of Manwich makes meals a messy-licious treat to be enjoyed with both hands - giving moms and dads an easy, quality ingredient to bring the family’s attention back to mealtime and away from everyday distractions.
There are three options of Manwich: Manwich Original, Manwich Bold and Manwich Thick & Chunky. For this recipe I'll be using Manwich Original.

Coffee Based Dry Rub
  • 1/4 finely ground roasted espresso coffee
  • 1/4 Brown Sugar
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1/2 tbs onion powder
  • 1/2 tbs garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp  ground red pepper flake
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • pinch dried thyme
Pull Pork Base Ingredients
  • 2 Cans Manwich Original Sauce
  • 1 Onion
  • Garlic Paste
  • Tomato Paste
  • Natural boneless pork butt
  • 1/4 cup of hot water


  1. Preheat oven to 325°
  2. In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients thoroughly, massaging the mixture with your fingers to break down the dark brown sugar into fine crystals.
  3. Liberally sprinkle a generous layer of the rub onto the pork butt, then pat it in with your fingers so it adheres.
  4. Coat a large Dutch oven with olive oil and bring to a high heat. Brown the pork on all sides but make sure the brown sugar doesn’t burn.
  5. Lower the heat to medium and toss in one sliced onion and season with salt and a sprinkle of crushed red pepper. Cook the onions until they are soft and very aromatic, 7 to 8 minutes. Add the 1 tablespoon of garlic paste and one tablespoon of tomato paste and cook 2 to 3 minutes longer
  6. Add the pork butt, fat-side-up and add ¼ cup of water, and cover it with two cans of Manwich Original.
  7. Put the lid on the Dutch oven and place it in the preheated oven for 2 hours. After the two hours remove lid and turn pork and reduce the oven temperature to 250 and let it cook for one more hour.
  8. Remove the roast from the Dutch oven, and shred the pork using two forks. Return the shredded pork to the pan, and stir the meat into the juices.
  9. Serve over fried plantains and your favorite guacamole recipe. Make sure you use lime in your guacamole to help cut the fattiness of the pork.

Recipe hack: Save leftover pork for pork quesadillas as an after school snack. My teens go crazy for this one.
