Every time I bring this dish to a potluck I get asked, "Where did you get the pork?" People are surprised to hear me say that I made it. When I tell them how simple the recipe is, they are doubly surprised. The two-step process fits the demanding schedule of any teacher—easy to make and easy to serve.—Betsy Rivas, Chesterfield, Missouri

"This pork has a nice vinegar flavor. I don't think it's overpowering like some Carolina recipes, however. Instead of returning the shredded pork to the slow cooker immediately, I cooled down the cooking liquid and skimmed the fat off the top. Then when I served the pork the next day, I reheated the liquid and doctored it up to our taste. The pork was pretty flavorful on its own, so I wouldn't have had to do that at all. Overall, an easy slow cooked pork recipe."

"Good but too much on the spicy side. Didn't have the taste we were looking for."
