Slow Cooker Cuban Pulled Pork

cookercubanpork    

I have made this slow cooker pork for years. It is a favorite in our house even for the picky ones.  Its versatile and is delicious on rice bowls, in tacos, nachos, burritos, and even in scrambled eggs.  This easy dish is incredibly juicy, melt in your mouth tender, and super flavorful from simmering all day with the spices and citrus.  It only takes a few minutes of preparation and you have an amazing dinner on the table the entire family will love.
