Ingredients:  
2 lbs. boneless pork shoulder roast, or butt; fat trimmed
4 scallions chopped
2 garlic clove, peeled
2 chili peppers, seeded and chopped
2 tablespoon tomato paste
2 tablespoon light brown sugar
2 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup cider vinegar
6 sliced sandwich rolls

Directions:
Marinade: Place green onions, garlic, chilies, tomato paste, brown sugar, allspice, thyme, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a blender or food processor until finely chopped. Add vinegar and whirl until smooth. Pour mixture into a heavy jumbo zip lock bag or marinade container. Add pork and turn to coat completely. Cover and chill at least 2 hours or up to 1 day. Transfer pork to slow cooker and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. If you don't have a crock pot you cook on stove-top but you need to add 1 cup water to pan, cover, and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat and then reduce heat to very low and simmering pork, turning after 1 and 1/2 hours. Simmer until meat is very tender when pierced and shreds easily with a fork. Takes 2 to 3 hours. Transfer meat to a bowl. Let meat cool for about 15 minutes. Skim and discard fat from surface of cooking liquid. Measure liquid; if there's more than 1 1/2 cups, boil over high heat until reduced to 1 1/2 cups. With a fork or your fingers, pull meat into thin shreds; remove and discard fat. Mix meat with cooking liquid. Add more salt and pepper to taste. Serve on buns with sweet pickles.

Personal Notes:
Serves 6 happy people! The pickles are a Cuban tradition, however, you can skip them. Some people put mustard on them but I don't care for it that way.
