Um, yes, it truly is every bit as amazing as it sounds. Two of the world's best foods mashed together into one truly amazing dinner. My famous slow cooker pulled pork is for more than just sandwiches. Make up a big batch, freeze and save for later. Then you can easily make homemade mac & cheese. Any time and even on a weeknight. Your family/friends/kids will love you for this one.
To me, one of the easiest things in the world to make is a big huge batch of pulled pork. A perfect cook all day meal and then to make it even easier I just cut it into chunks and toss it in my mixer to let it do the shredding work for me. I love a meal that practically cooks itself. Use the pork for sandwiches, tacos, nachos, enchiladas, and, well, you get the point. It's totally worth your time.
Then, when you need a quick dinner, just boil up a few macaroni noodles...
Make up my homemade cheese sauce (seriously, it takes less than 10 minutes)....
Top with some breadcrumb and pop it in the oven. Dinner is seriously this easy and homemade. Such a huge win all the way around!
