RECIPE: Pulled Pork Sandwiches

This is a great dish to make for a crowd - it can stretch a modest amount of meat into quite a few servings! I make this when pork roast goes on sale for 99 cents a pound.

1 1/2 - 2lbs pork roast
1 medium onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 ribs celery, finely diced
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp dry mustard powder
1 tsp paprika
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
3 cups water

In a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan, saute onion, garlic and celery in olive oil until they start to soften. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 1/2 hrs or until meat is tender and can be easily shredded with a fork. Remove roast to a large bowl and shred using 2 forks. Return shredded meat to pot with sauce and simmer until meat is heated through. Serve on hamburger or kaiser buns.
