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. I’ve never had pulled pork before, and now that I don’t eat meat I guess I never will. I still like this post though, because now I know what’s in pulled pork, whereas before I’d only heard of it!

  2. Last night during super bowl, my husband decided to have the guys over this Friday for a card game. I woke up this morning thinking what am I going to feed these guys. Thank you! I am going to serve your pork sandwiches. Do you have any other ideas for a girl that normally serves tea sandwiches?! Have a golden day! xo

    1. We served homemade fries and sweet potato fries with the sandwiches. We also had chips/salsa and guacamole.

  3. Pulled pork is among my favorite things to make for the big game! Usually we do ours on the smoker, but the slow cooker is a great way to do it during the week, or when you do not want to be tied to a smoker all day. Looks really tasty!
