Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork

This is the perfect recipe for those days you don’t want to spend your entire day in the kitchen preparing a meal.  What could be easier than taking a few minutes to throw all the ingredients into a slow-cooker and hours later having a delicious meal and while it is slowly cooking it leaves our home with a gorgeous sweet smelling aroma throughout the house.  This is one of those recipes that I have no choice but to leave the house or get constantly asked ‘is it ready yet’, really? Luckily,  Pulled Pork is an all day event!

The beauty of this dish is that it can be served with whatever you can dream up like a green salad and some crusty bread, roasted sweet potatoes, green beans or even spooned over a bed of rice.

My boys can’t get enough of my juicy mouth-watering Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork recipe . They pile the pulled pork a mile high on a toasted bun and slather on crunchy sweet and tangy coleslaw and top it off with whatever sliced cheese we happen to have in the house like Colby Jack or Monterrey Jack which are two of their favourites. 

This is a perfect dish for an informal dinner or game night! Serve it on a buffet and it will disappear quickly!
