Slow Cooker Sweet & Spicy Shredded Pork



If you’re looking for your next dish to bring to a BBQ, pool party, or even a simple, no-hassle weeknight dinner, I have the perfect dish for you! My Slow Cooker Sweet and Spicy Shredded Pork is to die for. I absolutely love Slow Cookers because they are a little piece of heaven for my fellow busy bee’s. After this meat has been cooking for hours, it shreds like butter and is so incredibly flavorful, juicy, versatile, and the perfect mix of sweet and spicy. It can be used in tacos, lettuce wraps, sandwiches, salads, by itself, or even with a fried egg for breakfast. Get creative! I absolutely cannot wait for you to try it. This recipe is also Paleo and Whole 30 approved.
