Slow Cooker Sesame Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Asian Slaw
Today is “East Meets West Day” which immediately had me thinking “what Asian inspired dish can I make in the crock-pot?” Surprisingly, a Google search turned up a few recipe ideas but I found this recipe at Eat My Charlotte and felt I had to give it a try. We are definitely fans of pulled pork sandwiches but the addition of an Asian flavor with the sesame oil and rice wine vinegar plus the broccoli slaw, made this a unique dish. I did change it up a little and I am sure my pictures don’t do it justice but my family was definitely asking for seconds on this one…in some cases thirds.
