Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches plus a trick

I’ve signed up for a 31 day  writing challenge.  Everyday in October, I am posting a new slow cooker recipe, a link to a previous posted slow cooker recipe, or a link to a recipe from another blog.

This pulled pork is super easy and only requires three ingredients.

Yesterday I went on a field trip to the Freedom Center down in Cincinnati.  When I got home, I was exhausted so having the pork in the slow cooker made having dinner easier.  I shredded up the pork and then made some root beer barbecue sauce for the sandwiches.  Imaginative One made some French fries to go with the sandwiches.  The pulled pork sandwiches were such an easy dinner.

I ended up freezing the remaining pulled pork for future meals.
