I wanted to build a better pork sandwich, and this Asian-style filling was a huge hit with my husband and co-workers. Bring on the wasabi mayo. —Jennifer Berry, Lexington, Ohio

  2. Remove pork; cool slightly. Shred meat into bite-size pieces; return to slow cooker. Stir in brown sugar and remaining salad dressing. Cook, covered, 30-45 minutes longer or until heated through.

Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with Newman’s Own Sesame Ginger Dressing.
Health Tip: Cuts of pork with "loin" in the name, like pork tenderloin and pork loin, are some of the leanest options. However, pork tenderloin will shred much more easily than pork loin, making it a a great lean meat choice for pulled pork sandwiches.

"Our whole family loved this recipe! I did use a pork roast instead of pork tenderloins because I had one on hand. It worked great, but I did need to increase the cooking time to 8-9 hours. The slaw is crunchy and delicious!"
