Shaker Pork Sandwiches
"The first time Dad tasted this pork, he said it was better than Mom's cooking! So Mom requested the recipe," shares Jenni Oyler of Poughkeepsie, New York. "It was their idea to serve the pork as sandwiches."

I have used this recipe for years. My family loves it. I usually cook the pork in the slow cooker.

These were excellent! The sweet and tangy sauce was a nice change of pace! Will definitely be part of our rotation from now on!
