I vorlauf not so much to reduce the bits and pieces of grain in the wort, but  to get a less cloudy runoff (maybe some think of it as the same thing . . I dunno) Anyway, the REAL easy vorlauf method is using the good ol' March pump to do the work and not have to drain and pour, drain and pour, drain and pour. Usually by the time I send the wort to the BK, the wort is free of debris and pretty darn clear.
Just brew it...

Like Denny, I've never had an issue with gently pouring wort back into the MLT.  Since I recently got a pump, I use it (with the output trimmed by a ball valve) to recirculate and run the pump's output hose into a plastic bowl sitting on top of the grain bed. Once the wort clears, I move the output hose to the boil kettle and open the valve some more.
...it's liquid bread, it's good for you!
