Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches plus a trick

I’ve signed up for a 31-day writing challenge.  Every day in October, I post a new slow cooker recipe, a link to a previously posted slow cooker recipe, or a recipe from another blog.

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

I went on a field trip to the Freedom Center in Cincinnati yesterday.  When I got home, I was exhausted, so having the pork in the slow cooker made having dinner easier.  I shredded the pork and 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.
