 BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches
Preparing pork roast in the slow cooker makes it so moist and tender...so it's perfect for these sandwiches. The meat shreds easily, and the cumin and garlic add just the right flavor. The sourdough bread, chipotle mayonnaise, cheese and tomato make it complete.—Tiffany Martinez, Aliso Viejo, California
