Cherry Pulled Pork Sandwich Recipe With Tangy Cilantro-Lime Slaw

Brown sugar and dried cherries add sweetness and chipotle peppers add a little heat to this easy slow-cooked pulled pork sandwich recipe. The cilantro slaw recipe takes it over the top.

Put the pork in the slow cooker in the morning before heading out the door. When you get home, all you need to do is make the slaw (or make that ahead of time!) and put out sandwich rolls or hamburger buns. Let the family help themselves. Gotta love sandwich night.
