Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches

We hosted a Super Bowl party yesterday. It was fun watching the game with good friends and good food. Josh made Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches and they were a hit. The best part-we didn’t even have to fuss with the recipe. The slow cooker did all of the work.

We made the pulled pork the night before the party and reheated it when our guests were about to arrive. We served the pulled pork on little sandwich buns. Everyone loved them!

  1. Everyone loved this! I made an 4.4lb and it was done on Low in more like 5 hrs.
    Smelled very “ketchup”-forward as it was cooking and i was worried but taste ended up GREAT! Served on brioche rolls topped with slaw…
    Will definitely make again!

  2. 5 stars
    I have made this many times for birthdays, memorial services, baby shower, pot lucks and just because. Everybody loves it and asks for the recipe. Only 1 person has said it was too spicy!! LOL
