Slow cook pulled pork with BBQ sauce

Pulled pork is a buffet table favorite. This how to video demonstrates how to make pulled pork with homemade barbecue sauce from your slow cooker or crock-pot.

Ingredients for pulled pork:
3-1/2 lb (1.75 kg) pork shoulder blade roast
3/4 tsp (4 mL) each salt and pepper
2 tbsp (25 mL) vegetable oil
2 onions, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp (25 mL) chili powder
2 tsp (10 mL) ground coriander
2 bay leaves
1/4 cup (50 mL) tomato paste
1 can (14 oz/398 mL) tomato sauce
2 tbsp (25 mL) each packed brown sugar and cider vinegar
2 tbsp (25 mL) Worcestershire sauce
2 green onions, thinly sliced

Preparation:
Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. In Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown pork all over. Transfer to slow cooker.

Add onions, garlic, chili powder, coriander and bay leaves to Dutch oven; fry, stirring occasionally, until onions are softened, about 5 minutes.

Add tomato paste; cook, stirring, until darkened, about 2 minutes. Add tomato sauce, sugar, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce, scraping up any brown bits from bottom of pan. Pour into slow cooker. Cover and cook on low until pork is tender, 8 to 10 hours.

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; skim off fat. Bring to boil over high heat; boil vigorously until reduced to 3 cups (750 mL), about 15 minutes. Discard bay leaves.

Add pork; reduce heat and simmer until hot, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with green onions.
