BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich

This is an easy recipe that is made primarily in the crockpot. I usually throw the meat in the crockpot in the morning and turn it on high. When I get home from work I pull it out of the crockpot and stick it in the fridge to cool off while I change. Then I get the bbq sauce on the stove and get that simmering. Next, I drain the liquid out of the crockpot and pull the pork and throw it back in there with the crock pot set on low. When the BBQ sauce is done, I pour it over the top of the meat and viola!

All you need to do to finsh of dinner is grab some chips and buns. This recipe yields plenty to freeze for a later meal or to have lunch in the fridge or a few days!

This recipe is great for serving at a birthday party or family gathering or at a potluck.

      I make pulled pork all the time in my crock pot. I think I will like your recipe, because I prefer a tangy sauce, and the apple cider vinegar would give great flavor I am sure! I agree, it does freeze well.
