Very easy to prepare. I served it on sweet potato buns, and it was absolutely delicious. I left out the cilantro in the slaw, as I am not a fan, and it was still very tasty. I will make this again for sure!

Delicious! Pork was tender and full of flavor. The slaw if a must have for that tangy crunch. I'm not a fan of Cilantro, but that's an easy fix. I will be making this again!
