Shredded Pork (slow cooker)

Thinly slice 1 onion. Layer onion slices in bottom of crockpot/slow cooker. Optionally add bay leaves and minced garlic.

Trim the excess gristle/fat off 2-3 lbs pork shoulder (or "shoulder ribs" work well too!), cut into chunks.

Coat pork pieces in spice rub (1 tea salt, 1 tea cumin, 1/2 tea coriander, 1/2 tea chili powder, 1/4 tea black pepper-- or your own favorite rub).

Place pork on top of onion in slow cooker.

Add 1 to 1.5 C liquid (chicken broth, or water, wine, orange/lime juice mixtures have all been suggested across the web).

Cook on low setting for 10 hours.

Shred with 2 forks.

Enjoy as is over rice, with poppy seed cole slaw. Or top with BBQ sauce. Or use as tamale filling!

Amazing when shredded and folded into corn tortilla tacos with avocado (see top photo)! Or add cabbage, scallions, salsa in a taco.
