Connie Johnson from Springfield, Missouri needs only five ingredients to fix this sweet and tender pork for sandwiches. "Feel free to adjust the sauce ingredients to suit your family's tastes," she suggests.
With molasses and brown sugar, this sweet and tangy pork takes just a few minutes of prep and offers plenty of hands-free time. It’s even more rewarding with yummy sweet potatoes. —Katie Grady, West Boylston, Massachusetts
I like to share this dish at potlucks because it can be made ahead, which I especially appreciate during the busy holiday season. The sweet-and-spicy sauce is always a hit.—Martha Anne Carpenter, Mesa, Arizona
