I threw some always-available condiments into my slow cooker with a pork roast to create this fantastic pulled pork. It has become a staple sandwich filler for large get-togethers. Serve with rolls, on top of toasted crostini, or as a filling for empanadas. The flavor of the pork goes well with a cold glass of white wine.—Lori Terry, Chicago, Illinois
