Crock Pot Pulled Pork

Christine Schnepp


This is one of my hubby's favorite dishes. I make a basic slaw on the side and he tops his sandwich with it. Served on a hard roll you can't go wrong with this recipe. I also use the leftovers for carnitas (pork tacos). Comes out juicy and tender every time! Enjoy :)

**You can skip the brine and move on to the other steps of the recipe if you like. It comes out just as tasty!
