My pulled pork is a happy flavor mash-up of Vietnamese pho noodle soup and a banh mi sandwich. It's one seriously delicious slow cooker dish. —Stacie Anderson, Virginia Beach, Virginia

"Very easy to pull together and came home to a good meal. I didnt have rice wine vinegar so I used white vinegar instead, as well as a pork tenderloin instead of a roast. We liked it, particularly topped with a little carrot and onion. I should have topped it with a little sriracha for myself too. :) I wish there had been more sauce, as the meat on top of the slow cooker got a little dry, but the flavor was still there. Even my daughter, who is not a fan of either soy sauce or sriracha, ate a large helping."

"This was very easy to make and we enjoyed it as a wrap. Next time I will add more soy sauce and cut roast into 4 pieces so the sauce will go deeper into the meat while cooking."
