Chopped Pig Sandwich

There are so many recipes for pulled pork and it's no wonder, it's delicious!
I wanted to try and find a recipe that was a little leaner with the same great flavor.
Usually when you make it you have to buy a big pork butt, full of fat and it takes hours and hours to cook.
This is a simplified version of the pig sandwich.  Takes less time, makes 8 hefty sandwiches and is tender, juicy, with a hint of smokey flavor.
3 lb. pork loin roast (not tenderloin)
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, sliced
3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 tsp. or more McCormick Smokehouse Maple Seasoning
Soft Kaiser buns
Garlic Dill Pickles.
In a medium saucepan, heat olive oil.  Add garlic slices and saute until garlic is slightly golden.  Cut pork roast into 3 equal pieces.  Brown pork on all sides along with the garlic.  Sprinkle with Smokehouse Maple Seasoning.
Place pieces of browned pork in slow cooker.  Add vinegar to saucepan and scrape up any bits left on the bottom of the pan.  Add to slow-cooker.  Pour in chicken broth, cover and set on high setting for 3 hours.
Remove pork and shred or chop as desired and return to slow cooker.  Keep warm for an additional hour.
Serve on buns with some of the juices, top off with BBQ sauce and coleslaw.
