Depending on the type of pork roast you have, you could make carnitas, my favorite for tacos.

If you can get it in a crockpot, you can make some great BBQ for sandwiches.
Season it up with a good Southwest seasoning, and add a can of beer. When the meat is falling apart, take it out and chop & shred it, then put back in crockpot and add a good BBQ sauce (I like Maull's) to the juice in the crockpot. Let simmer an hour or so, then you are ready to serve it up on a bun.

Oh yeah!!!! One of our favorites.

We also like to brown off the roast on all sides, seasoning with lots of pepper. Remove from the pot and toss in 1 onion sliced and 3 or 4 cloves of chopped garlic. When they are nicely browned put the pork back with a can of beer or 12 ounces of apple juice and a couple of cans of saurkraut, a tsp. of caraway seeds, and a slice apple on top. Cover and cook slowly until it's falling apart.

I could probably convince myself it wasn't pork if I did carnitas. Although sweet and sour pork doesn't sound too bad either. The thing isn't very big, maybe a pound and a half. About the size of a grapefruit.

Why not donate it to your local church, food bank, or homeless shelter? I'm sure they would be happy to prepare it to feed those that need a meal. (You can even write off the cost on your taxes as a donation.)

I am with you sephora... after observing some awful vista of a knackeryard not so far away from a place I used to live in the days of yore in Texas, I had problems with beef for a long, long time for the same reason.
Now I am okay with something like mince or perfectly filleted slice which has minimal reminder of its former life, then I try not to think about where it comes from, and I can eat them.
The same thing with fish... when we buy them whole, Cris picks out the fish from the stall (I can't bear the sight of dead, or almost dead fish...), then does all the dirty work while I just go outside until the coast is clear.
Maybe you can have someone slice them up nicely, and tell yourself its simply a form of "food", and block out the thoughts as to its source. That's how I came to terms with some form of meats... maybe not perfectly correct as an ethic, but when you live with meateaters, you need to make some compromise somewhere...

I make a bbq pork roast. You cut holes into the pork and insert some slivers of garlic, then top it with bbq sauce ( I make my own), it's really good when it carmelizes. If you have leftovers you could make open face sandwiches with gravy on top.

Anyway, do a braise if you don't know.
