2 1/2 pound boneless pork sirloin roast
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup water
8 crusty rolls, split lengthwise
1 1/2 cups prepared guacamole (about 14 ounces)
3 tomatoes, cored and cut into 16 slices

Rub the pork roast with the chili powder and salt. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and brown the pork, turning, for about 5 minutes. Transfer to a 3 1/2- to 5-quart slow cooker.

Add 1/4 cup of water, cover and cook for 5 1/2 to 6 hours on low heat until the pork is fork tender. Transfer the pork to a cutting board and let it rest for about 10 minutes. Discard the liquid in the slow cooker's crockery insert.

Slice the pork crosswise into 16 thin slices, discarding the string. For each serving, put 2 slices of pork in a roll and top with about 3 tablespoons of guacamole and 2 slices of tomato. Cut in half crosswise and serve warm.

Note: For a mild garlic flavor, before cooking, cut a large garlic clove into 12 slivers, pierce the roast in 12 places and with the tip of a knife, insert a garlic sliver into each opening.

Using a slow cooker is a trouble-free way to cook pulled pork. In the winter when you don’t have easy access to the grill, it’s foolproof. And it’s always easy. Serve the pork on soft buns with barbecue sauce. Baked beans and chips finish the meal!
