Slow-cooked pork sandwich recipe: an mmm mmm good summer meal

St. Anthony with a pig in the background. Writing a recipe, perhaps?

Life doesn't get much easier when dinner comes ready-made in a slow-cooker. Try this recipe when you know your evening will be hectic but you've got some time to spare in the morning.

Slow-Cooked Pork Sandwiches

For the pork:
1 3-lb. pork loin
1 large garlic clove, halved
1/2 small Granny Smith apple
1/2 small onion
1/2 c. favorite bbq sauce
2 T maple syrup
salt & pepper to taste

Place the pork loin in the slow cooker and fill about 2/3 of the way to the brim with water. Cut the apple half in half (so, technically, you're holding 2 quarters of an apple) and add them to the cooker with the rest of the ingredients. Cover and leave on medium heat. If you're at home while it's cooking, it's always good to check it every few hours.

Cook for at least 6 hours or until the meat is no longer pink and is cooked through. At this point it should be practically falling off the bone.

For the sandwiches (serves 2):
cooked pork, shredded
2 slices white cheddar cheese
the onion used to make the pork, sliced
4 slices bread
spicy mustard

Between the pieces of bread, layer mustard, onion, pork, cheese and sauerkraut. On a small kitchen grill, panini press or the stove top, press and grill the sandwiches. Serve warm with your favorite summer sides.
