Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwich

This recipe first appeared on One Chef One Critic on Super Bowl 50 Sunday, a day of tremendous victory for the Denver Broncos. It also happens to be the perfect nosh for TV sports (i.e. football) viewing! Our guest, CBC Radio’s Anthony Germain helped us prepare this fabulous pulled pork sandwich. Anthony loved the succulent slow cooked pork filling as much as we did.

Serves 8

5 lb bone-in (2 kg) pork shoulder
8 sliced Kaiser rolls (or more)
2 cups (500 mL) BBQ sauce
1 lb (450 g) hard cheese (your choice)
1/4 tsp (1 mL) cinnamon
1/2 tsp (2 mL) cumin
1 tbsp (15 mL) chili powder
1 tbsp (15 mL) salt
1 tbsp (15 mL) brown sugar
4 large garlic cloves, very thinly sliced
2 large onions, very thinly sliced
1 cup (250 mL) no-salt chicken broth

Place onions and garlic on bottom of slow cooker. Pour in chicken broth. In a small bowl mix all dry ingredients (including sugar) together. Next thoroughly rub the mixture into the entire surface area of the pork shoulder. Place pork on bed of broth, onions and garlic. Cover and cook on low for 10 hours. When pork is cooked, remove, cool and (using your clean fingers) shed meat into a large bowl. Mix the BBQ sauce through shredded pork. Make your sandwiches using shredded pork topped with cheese. Serve with homemade coleslaw and pickles. (We like sliced dill pickles.)
