Crockpot BBQ Pulled Pork Sammies

bbq pulled porkI’m simply amazed at how good these darn pulled pork sandwiches turned out.  We’ve been buying all of our meat and chicken from Whole Foods lately.  I know it may sound absurd to some people, but I can tell the difference in their meats and poultry.  It’s so much more tender and cooks like a dream.

The pork in these sammies practically melted in our mouths.  It was so delicious!  I know we’ll have these again since they were practically effort free.

    • Hi Rachel. It depends on what size piece of pork you use and how much everyone puts on their sandwiches. But you should at least get 6 – 8 servings on average.
