Sweet & Spicy Pulled Pork Sandwiches

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. The flavor of the pork goes well with a cold glass of white wine.—Lori Terry, Chicago, Illinois

    One of the best pork recipes I've tried in a long time! The molasses and cloves gives it a rich flavor! I'll definitely make this again!

    The pork was delicious, if I make it again I would not mix back into cooking juices, I thought the meat taste better before mixing back into the juices. I would cook as directed, shred meat and onions then mix with barbecue sauce.
