Hey guys, happy Friday! Ready for a fun weekend? I rarely post a pork recipe, but if you didn’t know I love pulled pork sandwiches and particularly these Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches! And I don’t have them as often as I would like.

Pulled pork requires minimal effort to make, especially if you make it in a slow cooker. I do have a go-to recipe, which I use most of the time, it is my pulled pork carnitas recipe. But I’ve been experimenting and testing some other pulled pork recipes, one of which I’m sharing today. You can definitely experiment with the seasonings, too. After the slow cooker does its magic, you’ll be surprised with the results.

I don’t even like to crisp the pork like I do in my pulled pork carnitas recipe.

After the meat is cooked, I shred it with fork and mix it with some barbecue sauce, before I add it to the sandwiches. You can garnish the sandwiches with cabbage, lettuce, add tomatoes, hot peppers and even cheese. I just used purple cabbage and arugula this time. I also used brioche buns.

I love making pulled pork sandwiches on the weekends. They are perfect for a lazy meal or even a party!

Have a great weekend!
