  • coleslaw

  • Cover and cook on low heat for 8 hours or until it shreds easily with two forks.
  • Remove pork and shred it using two forks.

There are lots of options when it comes to pork roasts. I have used a pork loin, shoulder and butt in this recipe and all work wonderfully. Boneless or bone-in are also fine. You just want to make sure your cut of meat fits comfortably in your slow cooker.
This recipe can be easily doubled.
