Braised Pork Sandwiches with Berry-Basil Sauce

Directions

  1. Trim fat from meat. If necessary, cut meat to fit into a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. For rub, in a small bowl combine oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt, garlic powder, dried basil, and pepper. Sprinkle rub evenly over meat; rub in with your fingers.
  2. In a medium bowl stir together preserves, blueberries, shallots, vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and garlic; set aside.
  3. In a large skillet cook meat in hot oil over medium-high heat until brown on all sides. Drain off fat. Place meat in cooker. Pour berry mixture over meat.
  4. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 4 to 4 1/2 hours or on high-heat setting for 2 to 2 1/4 hours. Remove meat from cooker, reserving cooking liquid. Cover meat loosely with foil and let stand for 15 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, for sauce, in a medium saucepan combine cornstarch and the water; stir in cooking liquid. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Stir in snipped fresh basil.
  6. Cut meat into thin slices or, using two forks, pull meat apart into shreds. Place meat on bottoms of buns. Spoon sauce over meat; replace tops of buns. If desired, garnish with fresh basil leaves.

This was ok. Really hard to eat as a sandwich with the berry sauce. Flavor of pork was good but it could have been a little more tender. Cooked it for 4 1/2 hours on low crock pot setting.
