Pulled Pork Sandwiches


Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 lb Homegrown Ontario pork shoulder blade roast
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 onions , chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves , minced
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 14 oz can tomato sauce
  • 2 tbsp packed brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 2 green onions , thinly sliced

Instructions

  • Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat and sear pork until brown all over. Transfer to slow cooker.
  • In the same skillet, add onions, garlic, chili powder, coriander and bay leaves. Fry ingredients while stirring occasionally, until onions are softened, about 5 minutes. Add tomato paste, tomato sauce, sugar, Worcestershire sauce and cider vinegar, scraping any brown bits from bottom of pan; bring to a boil. Pour sauce into slow cooker, cover and cook on low until pork is tender, 8 to 10 hours.
  • Once cooked, transfer pork to cutting board and tent with foil; let stand for 10 minutes. With two forks, shred or “pull” pork.
  • Meanwhile, pour liquid from slow cooker into large saucepan and skim off fat. Bring to a boil over high heat and let boil vigorously until reduced to 3 cups (750 mL), about 15 minutes. Discard bay leaves.
  • Add pulled pork to reduced sauce mixture and lower heat to simmer until hot, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with green onions. Serve on crust rolls with a green salad. For an appetizer, place pulled pork on a crostini and top with caramelized onions.
