Delicious slow cooker pulled pork


So, yesterday I figured I had Hawaiian buns, I had a pork roast, I decided to make pulled pork. I have very little time now to cook or do anything that requires two hands, as I am taking care of a baby, so this recipe was perfect! I had the baby in the high chair, and the prep time took me 10 mins max. Then put it in the slow cooker, and forget it! I used a recipe from Chow, and modified it to my liking, and to what I had on hand. Turned out to be divine slow cooker pulled pork – enjoy!
