Easy Pulled Pork Sandwiches

This is a super easy, no fail recipe. Put together in  an instant, and you can pretty much forget about it until you’re ready to eat.

This is also great for crowds and parties since you can leave the finished pulled pork in the slow cooker on the “keep warm” setting for at least an other two hours without it drying out.

Alternatively, you can freeze half and eat it some other day. It will keep in the freezer for about two months.
