Making Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Crafting pulled pork sandwiches at home is a breeze! Begin by slow cooking the pork in a crockpot or Instant Pot with a mixture of BBQ sauce, apple cider vinegar, and flavorful seasonings. Once the pork is tender and succulent, use a fork to shred it or chop it into bite-sized pieces. To assemble the sandwiches, place a generous amount of the pulled pork on a bun or roll and top it off with your favorite sauces and condiments. Whether you prefer smoky barbecue sauce, zesty red onions, or creamy sour cream, the choice is yours!
