These slow cooker pulled pork sandwiches are filling, totally tasty, and will definitely leave hoping for leftovers!
I can honestly say that I’ve never had pulled pork sandwiches before. So I really have nothing to compare these to. But I will say this much, these were GOOD!
This was such an easy dinner! I was exhausted when I got home after running errands all day and dinner was ready when I got there. How awesome is that?!
I’m really liking this “using my slow cooker in summer” thing. Why have I never done this before? Why did I think my slow cooker was only for the fall and winter months? When a cow laughs, does milk come out of its nose? If a word is misspelled in the dictionary, how will anyone ever know? Why are there interstate highways in Hawaii?
We may never know the answers to these important and critical questions. ~Sigh~ But at least we can enjoy a good sandwich while we think it over…
