Here's a perfect and VERY EASY go-to recipe for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. Who doesn't love some good barbecue, especially when it involves as little work as possible? Thank you slow cookers for helping people all around the country spend less time in the kitchen, so they can enjoy more time with family!
These pulled pork sandwiches are so yummy! I know I use that word a lot, but it's true. I've made pulled pork before with just using a basic BBQ sauce, but adding all the extra spices really changed the flavor and added so much depth to the final product. You definitely get a little kick from the paprika and chili powder, which contrasts the bit of sweet from the brown sugar.
I had some sauce dripping down my chin and I MAY or may not have licked it off with my tongue.
It tastes that good.
So, make these this weekend and serve them alongside some homemade sweet potato fries, a grilled salad, banana pudding, and ice cream. Sounds like a perfect way to enjoy the nice weather and a fun holiday!
