Pulled Pork Sandwiches & Rainbow Slaw

I love pulled pork sandwiches and coleslaw. It's an odd choice of comfort food in that I haven't actually liked barbeque for very long and I'm not actually a big fan of pork.

It's strange to think that as a kid I hated barbeque, though I think it's because I hadn't found a BBQ sauce that I liked. I'm more partial to vinegar-y tasting sauces, and most of the time if you go out for barbeque in Texas, the sauce is more on the sweet side.

Anyways, I bought a crock-pot/slow cooker a week or so ago and I'd been itching to use it. I'm gone for work until late some nights and there's no opportunity to cook when I get home, so having something already made and hot that Ryan can eat when he gets home from class sounded like a dream come true.

So when Taylor mentioned she'd found a really great recipe on Pinterest that was super easy (only 4 ingredients!) and made for the crock-pot, I tried it.

I'm soso glad I did, especially since I was side-eyeing the part about adding a can of diet pepsi to the mix. It was so good! And it made enough for lunch today and maybe a bit extra! The only thing I changed about the recipe was that I used Stubb's regular BBQ sauce instead of the one they recommended, because I wanted a less sweet tasting pulled pork.

As for the coleslaw, I just used a rainbow slaw mix I got at the grocery store (it has broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and red cabbage). I prefer the rainbow slaw to regular cabbage slaw mix because you're getting more vitamins and a better variety of veggies, especially since you're not really eating something particularly healthy. Then I mix just a little bit of Marzetti's coleslaw dressing in, salt and pepper it, and voila!
