It’s an easy meal to put in a slow cooker and just forget about it the rest of the day until you come home from work with a (very) empty stomach and become engulfed in the wonderful savory smells of roasted pork. This roast was so tender, it took mere seconds to shred and save for leftover pulled pork sandwiches tomorrow. 🙂
