Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches


I asked my readers awhile back what they wanted to see more of on this blog.  The overwhelming answer was "easy family meals". 

Well, here you have it folks.  This could quite possibly be the simplest family meal...ever.  It takes about 1 minute of prep time and the rest is spent smelling the glorious aroma drifting through your house.  Perfect for working moms, dads, or heck even if you are home all day, it doesn't require any babysitting.

With this being the first day of Fall, I thought it would be only fitting to showcase a slow cooker meal.  After all, that is what Fall is all about right?

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches
1 pork roast (I used 3 lb. pork butt)
1 can diet cola
1 c. barbecue sauce
salt
pepper

Generously season roast with salt and pepper.  Place in slow cooker (medium or large, depending on size of roast).  Pour in cola and barbecue sauce.  Set on low and cook for 6-8 hours.

When done, shred meat with fork, serve on buns, adding additional barbecue sauce if desired.

I served this with a simple coleslaw (1 bag shredded cabbage and carrots, 1 small jar T. Marzetti's slaw dressing, 1 t. ground mustard, salt, pepper).

You know what is even better about this meal?  It makes a lot, therefore no cooking will be had for at least two dinners at your house.  Perfect in my opinion.  Or, even better, turn some of the leftover pulled pork into a pizza the next night.  Pizza crust, barbecue sauce, pulled pork, cheese....um, um, good.

Do you ever turn one meal's leftovers into a totally different meal the next night?

    I have turned leftovers into a different meal the next day ... but I don't do it often.
