Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
Memorial Day is an important holiday to me. It’s about more than just a day off and great food. My Grandfather’s funeral was on Memorial Day.
My Grandfather was very important to me. He and my Grandmother lived within walking distance of my teenage home. I spent many hours with my Grandparents. My Grandfather took me for my driving test at 16 and spent hours in his station wagon with me teaching me how to parallel park.
My Grandfather served in World War II. He was a brave Air Force Navigator.
I honor and remember the sacrifices of our Military everyday.
Pulled pork says Summer to me.
Using the Slow Cooker says easy to me.
Slow Cooker Pulled Pork, lightly adapted from a Fox4 Good Day recipe segment.
