Not to brag, but this Slow-Cooked Pulled Pork Sandwiches recipe is very popular. And what's not to love? A handful of pantry-staples go into the slow cooker and your work is done. We like the extra layer of flavor you get from browning the pork first, but you can skip it and just add the pork to the cooker and it will still be delicious. The secret is the sweet and savory sauce made with rich condensed French onion soup. The pork simmers in the sauce until it's fall-apart tender. There are a lot of slow cooker pulled pork recipes out there, but try these Slow-Cooked Pulled Pork Sandwiches, we think you'll love them!

Season the pork with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook until well browned on all sides.
Stir the soup, ketchup, vinegar and brown sugar in a 5-quart slow cooker. Add the pork and turn to coat.
Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 9 hours or until the pork is fork-tender.
Remove the pork to a cutting board. Skim the fat from the liquid in the cooker. Using 2 forks, shred the pork. Return the pork to the cooker. Divide the pork and sauce among the buns.
I've been making this for quite a few years now & it's a hit every time.
You really can't get any easier than this recipe. The pork is so tender and begins to fall apart after only just a short time cooking, the aroma of the sauce will make your mouth water!
This is a very hearty dish when served (we do open-faced) over onion rolls & I like to make homemade baked mac & cheese on the side...yummy!
Delicious and easy!
I loved this recipe. And my family loved it too.
I have made this with both pork and beef, and both turned out very well. I made the pork first and made it as the directions indicated. I did, however, make the sauce the night before and left it in the fridge so the flavors could combine. I also cut up an onion and put the meat on top. When it (the pork) was finished it didn't have a lot of flavor, and we added bbq sauce to it. When my husband and I made the beef we added the sauce after, draining most of the liquid beforehand. That turned out much better! We are so excited to make this for family!
Simple, I like simple
I've tried this straight up, and it was good. If you family likes molasses, here is your chance. I tried a half cup of mild molasses, and the same amount of cider vinegar. It was better. Have not, yet, gone beyond that.
Last time I tried it, I added a teaspoon of ground cloves, we all liked that as well. Am thinking allspice next time.
Also skipped the browning step.
This is so easy and wonderfully flavorful. My mom, who already knew how to make very good pulled pork, asked for MY recipe after tasting this. It's one of those meals that I feel confident serving to guests in my home. I serve it with seasoned steak-cut fries, applesauce, and a can of Campbell's pork and beans.
