Slow Cooked Pork Roast

I don't care for sweet pork and hubby doesn't like the smell of pork cooking with liquid smoke. I have made a few pork recipes we just didn't love. But I do enjoy good slow cooked shredded pork, it is versatile. Top it with slaw for a yummy sandwich, use it to make enchiladas, tacos, tostadas etc. I was happy to find this Slow Cooked Pork recipe on For the Love of  Cooking, it is one great recipe.

Slow Cooked Pork Roast
 Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a heavy pan add a pork shoulder roast that has been seasoned with salt, pepper, cumin, coriander and dried oregano. Brown on all sides. Add 2 cups chicken broth, 1/2 cup chopped cilantro, 6 pressed garlic cloves and 1 small can green chili peppers. Bake covered at 300 for 5-6 hours. Turn roast half way through. Roast is done when meat is tender and easily shreds.
Drain drippings, remove fat, discard. Drizzle drippings over shredded pork. It is so good. At this point the meat can be made into a sandwich or used for enchiladas, tostadas etc. It can also be frozen in 1 or 2 cup portions.

Sounds easy, sounds delicious, and sounds like I need to make this for the enchiladas and other things!
