Sweet & Tangy Pulled Pork
The slow cooker makes these super sandwiches a snap to put together on a busy weeknight. You’d think I'd slaved over them all day! I like to serve them with a side of creamy coleslaw or corn on the cob. If you don't have soy sauce, you can use 1/4 cup of broth instead. —Megan Klimkewicz, Kaiser, Missouri
