Pulled Pork Sandwich

I found this recipe in one of my favorite magazines, Canadian Living, and made it a few weeks ago!!  It was so yummy, tender & juicy that I am making it again today for dinner.  It is simple with very little prep, and it sits in the slow cooker all day just absorbing all of the saucy goodness!  Here it is for you to try...your sure to make apart of your family favorites.

Saucy Pulled Pork in the Slow Cooker

3 1/2 lb boneless pork shoulder blade roast
3/4 tsp each salt & pepper
2 tbsp veg oil
2 onions diced
3 or 4 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tbsp chili powder
2 tsp ground coriander
2 bay leaves
1/4 cup tomato paste
1 can (14 oz) tomato sauce
2 tbsp each packed brown sugar & cider vinegar
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 green onion, sliced

Sprinkle pork with salt & pepper.  In a dutch oven, heat oil over med heat: brown pork all over.  Transfer to slow cooker.
Drain all but 1 tbsp fat from pan, cook onions, garlic, chili powder, coriander & bay leaves over med heat, stirring occasionally until onions are softened, about 5 minutes.
Add tomato paste: cook, stirring until darkened, about 2 minutes. 
Add tomato sauce, sugar, vinegar, & the W sauce; bring it to a boil scraping up the brown bits. Scrape into the slow cooker & cook on low until pork is tender. 8 - 10 hours. 
Transfer pork unto cutting board; cover with foil and let stand for 10 minutes.  With 2 forks, shred or "pull" pork. 
Meanwhile, pour liquid from slow cooker into large saucepan: skim off fat.  Bring to boil over high heat; boil until reduced to 3 cups, about 15 minutes.  Discard bay leaves.  Add pork.  Reduce heat and simmer until hot, about 4 minutes.  Sprinkle with green onions.
