For pork:
  • 4 lb. boneless pork shoulder (loin or butt work well, too)
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tbsp. cumin
  • 1 tbsp. coarse salt
  • ½ cup fruit juice (orange, apple, even white grape works)
  • Juice of two limes
  • One onion, sliced
  • ¼ tsp. ground red pepper
  • ¼ tsp. ground yellow mustard
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
For sandwiches:
  • Ham slices
  • Sliced Swiss cheese
  • Mustard
  • Pickles
  • Loaf of French bread or hoagie rolls
  • Butter
Instructions
  1. Place onion slices in the bottom of slow cooker, and add pork.
  2. Sprinkle with salt, oregano, cumin, red pepper, yellow mustard, and garlic.
  3. Squeeze lime juice on top, followed by fruit juice.
  4. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours or HIGH for 5 hours.
  5. Shred pork inside slow cooker, allowing juices to be absorbed into meat.
To make sandwiches:
  1. Spread mustard on the bread, and layer the ham on the bottom, followed by a serving of pork, topped with cheese, and pickles.
  2. Spread butter on top and bottom of the sandwich, and grill, with a sandwich press or a heated skillet, flattening the sandwich with a second pan.
  3. When the outside is crispy and the cheese is melted, the sandwich is done.
  4. The leftover pork makes excellent tacos.
