Pork Sandwiches with Roasted Tomatoes and Jalapenos

Directions

  1. Remove netting from roast, if present. Trim fat from meat. Using a mortar and pestle or spice grinder, grind cumin seeds. For rub, in a small bowl stir together cumin, brown sugar, 1 teaspoon salt, cayenne pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Sprinkle evenly over meat; rub in with your fingers.
  2. For a charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around a drip pan. Test for medium heat above pan. Place roast in a roasting pan on grill rack over drip pan. Add the onion and cola to pan with the roast. Add enough broth to make liquid 1/2 inch deep. Cover and grill about 4 hours or until meat is extremely tender, adding broth to roasting pan if necessary and adding fresh coals every 45 to 60 minutes. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Adjust for indirect cooking. Place roast in roasting pan; place pan on grill rack over the burner that is turned off and add onion, cola, and broth. Grill as directed.)
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet cook tomatoes in hot oil over medium heat for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain jalapenos, reserving 1/2 cup liquid; set jalapenos aside. Add reserved liquid, cilantro, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper to skillet. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 15 to 20 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.
  4. Using a slotted spoon, transfer onion to a large bowl; set aside. Using tongs, transfer pork to a cutting board; discard cooking liquid. Using two forks, gently pull the meat into long, thin shreds. Add shredded pork to onion.
  5. To serve, spoon meat mixture and tomato mixture evenly into split buns. Serve with jalapenos and lime wedges.
