I’m always on the lookout for crock pot recipes to make on busy nights. I tutor and some nights I get home right around dinner time. I like to find recipes I can make earlier in the day that are ready to serve when I get home. Tonight, we had Slow-Cooker Pork Sandwiches.
I have a subscription to Real Simple Magazine. I love flipping through my issue each month. In the December issue, there was a recipe for Slow-Cooker Pork Sandwiches With Parsley and Pickles. I finally got around to trying it out tonight. It was a hit! There was little preparation time. The pork was juicy and tender.

Here are the ingredients you’ll need if you decide to make this pork sandwich recipe at home too. I did not have a baguette, so we ate our crock pot pork on hamburger buns.
1 3-pound piece boneless, skinless pork shoulder
6 cloves garlic, quartered (Quick Kitchen Tip – How to Easily Peel Garlic)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
1 1/2 teaspoons fennel seeds
1 teaspoon orange zest (from 1/2 orange)
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes Kosher salt and black pepper
1 large baguette, split horizontally and cut into 4 pieces
Dijon mustard, dill pickles, and fresh parsley, for serving
