Slow-Cooked Pork Roast

This is one of my favorite pork dishes - it is yummy, cheap and great reheated for left-overs.

Slow-Cooked Pork Roast

Serves 6

1 yellow onion, roughly chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 (15-ounce) can fire roasted tomatoes
1 to 2 chipotle peppers, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves
4 to 5 pound pork prime rib roast
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 275 degrees.
Place pork roast in a roasting pan.
Add onion, garlic, tomatoes, chipotle peppers, Worcestershire sauce and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper. Add just enough water to cover the bottom of the pan.
Bake at 275 degrees for 5 - 6 hours.

Remove pork from oven and shred using 2 forks.
Toss with 1/2 cup of the liquid from the roasting pan.
Pork can be used for pork tacos, pulled pork sandwiches, bar-b-que sandwiches or as main course of meal.
