Pulled Pork Sandwiches

And now, back to our regularly scheduled blogging! 

Sorry I’ve been MIA for the past few weeks; however, it is travel season for work so I’ve been gone a lot.  But in the few days that I actually have been home and cooking, I’ve been documenting as much as I could so I’d have stuff to blog about!  So, I should be back to blogging regularly since I have enough photos and recipes for while I’m on the road.

A few weeks ago, we had our dear friends, Jayla, over for dinner and a movie.  I wanted something easy to make and when I think “easy,” I think “Crockpot.”  Well, it just so happens that I’d seen a recipe on one of the enjoyable blogs that I read, Iowa Girl Eats, and I thought it’d be perfect.  BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches.

This recipe was great and I was so happy with how it turned out!  Not only was it crazy simple, but it was super delicious.  All I did was cut up a pork roast, throw it in the Crockpot with a bit of seasoning mix, balsamic vinegar and water, set the timer for all day (7:30am – 5:30pm) and voila!  A delicious meal was ready.  Once I got home from work, I shredded the pork (which was insanely easy, since it was so tender), added some BBQ sauce and let it sit for a bit, until our guests arrived.  Delish!  Since this cooked while I was at work, it gave me plenty of time once I got home to make my side dishes.  Awesome.  I highly recommend this meal.  It was easy, fast and very tasty!
