Super easy slow cooker dinner

Did you know that the main course of your dinner could be made out 3 ingredients? Well, I found this recipe on Dinner with Kristen and tried it because it sounded interesting. And it has been a fabulous hit. We've even been actively seeking out the leftovers for later snacks and it's just as good as it was the first time. YES!!!

Pulled Pork Sandwiches
1 (2-3 pound) pork roast, I just bought a butt roast for $1.19 a lb. at Stater Bros. today, Wahoo!
1 can root beer

In the morning, put the roast in the crockpot and top with the root beer. Cover and set the temp. to low. Cook for 8-10 hours.
When it's ready, dump out the liquids. Shred the meat and add your favorite BBQ sauce and eat as a sandwich.

Kristen also had this really great recipe for coleslaw that we either ate with the sandwich or alongside it. It's really good on top of the pulled pork. It's an approximation of one of Tyler Florence's recipes. I like it because it has great flavor and tasted good with the meal.

1 1/2 tsp. Dijon or whole grain mustard
2 TBS. mayo
1/4 c. sour cream
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 Tbs. of red wine vinegar
1 Tbs. sugar
black pepper and salt to taste
1 bag of shredded cabbage
Mix ingredients well. Then add coleslaw. Serve alongside or on top of pulled pork sandwiches.

So, here are the recipes. I  hope you enjoy them as much as we have.

That sounds delicious and easy! Just what we need at our house! I think we'll give it a try in the next week or so.
