2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

2 medium yellow onions, thinly sliced
1 bottle (12 ounces) lager beer
2 cups barbeque sauce
10 onion buns
10 slices smoked Gouda cheese (optional)

1. In small bowl, combine garlic, brown sugar, chili powder, coriander, cayenne pepper and black pepper. Place pork and seasonings into slow-cooker bowl; stir to mix well. Add onions and pour in beer, making sure onions are submerged in liquid. Cover and cook on high 7 to 8 hours or until pork shreds easily.
