Much of what surrounds us moves at fast pace to obtain instant gratification. Appreciation for achieving something through careful planning and patience is a lost thought. This is why you won’t often hear much about slow cooking. The wait’s too long, it takes too much planning, or there’s no time. These are some of the excuses to not slow cook. Quite the opposite, slow cooking saves a lot of time spent in the kitchen if you plan ahead of time.
Picture walking into your home, greeted by the smell of mouth-watering and tangy pulled pork. All that’s left is to set the table and eat!
For this pulled pork recipe, I paired it with Vietnamese bread, garnished with cilantro, jalapenos & cucumber. It is exquisite, flavorful and super easy to make!!
So go ahead and take out your slow cooker from storage, cook up this delicious pulled pork and “wow” the whole family. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
