Slow-Cooked Pulled Pork Recipe

Slow-Cooked Pulled Pork Recipe

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
