Barbecued Pulled Pork Sandwiches

1 (2 1/2 to 3 pounds) pork shoulder picnic roast
1 can (10 ounces) chopped tomatoes with green chile peppers, undrained
1 jar (8 ounces) applesauce
1/3 cup tomato paste
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 T Worcestershire sauce
10 to 12 kaiser rolls, split and toasted
sliced red onion (optional)  

Put meat into crock pot.  Combine next 5 ingredients, pour over meat.  Cook on low-setting for 10 to 12 hours or on high-heat for 5 to 6 hours.

Transfer meat  to cutting board, reserving juices.  Cover meat and keep warm.  pour reserved juices into a medium saucepan; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat; cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 20 minutes or until desired consistency.  Shred meat.

Place meat over bottom of rolls, top with onion.  Drizzle with juices.  Top with tops of rolls.

*I adapted this from a recipe for barbecued beef sandwiches.  These are tasty, but not exactly what I was looking for; definitely worth making, but I'll keep looking for the perfect pulled pork recipe.  Feel free to leave your suggestions in a comment!
