Spicy Pulled Pork
1 onion, diced
2 Tbsp fresh oregano, finely chopped
1 bay leaf
2 jalapeno peppers, seeds removed, finely minced
1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
1 28 oz can whole tomatoes, drained
salt and pepper
2½ lb boneless pork shoulder, trimmed
grated cheddar cheese
low-fat sour cream
Combine onion, oregano, bay leaf, jalapeno peppers, crushed tomatoes, whole tomatoes and pork in a slow cooker. Season with salt and pepper. The pork may have to be cut crosswise to fit.
Cover, and cook on high setting for 6-7 hours, until meat is tender and pulls apart.
Transfer the meat to a large bowl. Tear it apart - traditionally done with two forks. The pork should be tender, and shredded into small pieces.
Return the meat to the slow cooker and toss it well with the sauce. Remove the bay leaf.
Top dish with grated cheddar cheese and sour cream; serve with a side of coleslaw.
