While you’re waiting for part two of the Sofrito recipes, here is something to tide you over.  This is another little crock pot gem that turned out to defy my rules about slow-cookers.  Make sure you have some extra BBQ sauce and rolls to slather this on because you’ll be coming back for more.

4 lbs pork roast (shoulder or butt)
2 large onions
1 cup ginger ale
1 (18 ounce) bottle favorite BBQ Sauce, plus extra for serving later if you want it.

Slice one onion and place in crock pot.  Put in the roast and cover with the other onion, sliced. Pour over the ginger ale. Cover and cook on LOW for about 12 hours.  Remove the meat, strain and save the onions, discard all liquid. With two forks, shred the meat, discarding any remaining fat, bones or skin. Most of the fat will have melted away.  Return the shredded meat and the onions to the crock pot, stir in the barbecue sauce. Continue to cook for another 4 to 6 hours on LOW.  Serve with toasted buns or rolls and additional barbecue sauce, and pepperoncinis.
