1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons dark molasses
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup tomato paste
4 large garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 pounds boneless pork shoulder, cut into 2-inch cubes
2 imported bay leaves
4 large, soft sesame-topped buns
Five Vegetable Slaw
How to Make It
Preheat the oven to 325°. In a medium bowl, whisk together the molasses, vinegar, tomato paste, garlic, cumin, cayenne, paprika, coriander, salt and black pepper. Place the pork cubes and bay leaves in a large, shallow, nonaluminum baking dish. Add the molasses mixture and stir well to coat. Cover with foil and bake until the pork is very tender, about 1 1/2 hours.
Remove the meat from the sauce and shred with a knife. Return the shredded meat to the baking dish and mix with the sauce.
Slice the buns in half. Spoon the pork onto the bottom halves of the buns and mound 1/2 cup or more of the Vegetable Slaw on top. Cover with the bun tops and serve the remaining Vegetable Slaw on the side.
