  1. Soak aji peppers in 1/2 cup hot water in a small bowl until peppers are softened, about 15 minutes; drain.
  2. Place aji peppers, 1 quartered onion, garlic, beer, salt, and cumin into a blender and pulse several times to chop onion and peppers. Blend the mixture until it has the consistency of thin gravy and aji seeds are crushed, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Slice pork loin roast into 2-ounce pieces (about the size of a deck of cards per piece). Place pork pieces into a slow cooker and pour blended aji sauce over the meat. Pour 1 cup water or as needed into the blender and pour water and any remaining sauce over meat to cover. Add allspice berries to the slow cooker.
  4. Grind oregano to a powder with a mortar and pestle and stir into the meat and sauce.
  5. Cover the cooker, set to High, and cook for 4 hours. Stir 3 onions cut into strips into meat mixture and cook until meat is very tender, 4 hours more.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Remove aji seeds to tone down spiciness. To cook on a stove top, follow instructions, placing items in a large pot. Cook for approximately 2 to 3 hours, until pork falls apart when pressed with a fork.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.
