Simple Southern Pulled Pork Sandwiches & Right Brain Slicing Onions

3 to 4 pounds pork roast
2 onions, chopped
18 oz. Stubb's Honey & Pecan BBQ Sauce
1/3 cup honey

12 Sandwich Buns

Place pork in crock pot and cover with onions, barbeque sauce and honey.  Cover and cook on low heat for 6 to 8 hours.  Shred meat and mix into sauce.  Serve warm.

This was H's choice of dinner this week.  We purchased the pork roast at Costco on Monday, froze half and started cooking today.  O2 took at day off school, and we purchased the rolls today.  I would love to do a onion chopping blog post, but I need the camera, which at the moment is ?  I will say, wearing contacts totally helps with the onion weeping, or else I have odd eyeballs that simply do not tear.  For the right brain people I will explain a fantastic way to dice onions.

First, using your best chef's knife (8-10") and a cutting board, slice off stem end (the flowering side) to peel (leaving root end in tact, something to hold onto).  Second, slice onion in half, halving the root bulb bit.  Third, lying the half onion flat on cutting surface, slice from blunt stem end to root end horizontally.  Fourth, make slices from root end to blunt stem end on the top vertically.  Finally, cutting parallel to the blunt end and the root chop the onion into beautiful little squares.  Repeat for second half. 

This work for garlic too.
 
How's that for a 4th grad type "How to" assignment?
