Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

4 lb boneless pork shoulder - cut off most fat
6 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 cup lime juice
1/2 cup orange juice
12 slices Swiss cheese, halved
24 slider sandwich buns

Lightly spray interior of slow cooker or crockpot with nonstick cooking spray.  Turn cooker on low setting.

Place the pork shoulder in the cooker and sprinkle with half the garlic, half the cumin and half the oregano.

Combine the remaining garlic, cumin, and oregano with the lime and orange juices; pour over the meat in the cooker.

Place the lid on the cooker and cook on low about 5 hours until pork is fork tender and thoroughly cooked.

Remove meat to a cutting board and let rest about 5 minutes; break into pieces.

Skim the fat off the juices in the cooker; reserve juice.

To make the sandwiches, place a half slice of cheese on the top of bun and broil until melted.  Pile meat on the bottom of the buns, garnish with pickles or other garnishes as desired.  Top with the cheese top of the bun.

Yield: 24 sliders
