Slow cooker pulled pork - perfect half time snack
Mr Foodie wanted to show off his cooking skills and make a dish that would go well with a beer for a half time feed during the Euro 2016 games. Pulled pork is very easy to make, it's just how long it takes to make it that causes the problems! With a slow cooker you can put it on to cook, go off and do your things in the house, and have dinner ready later. Sorted!
