Pulled Pork in a Crockpot

I like to cook, but sometimes it's nice to throw everything in the crockpot after breakfast and magically have dinner ready at 5 o'clock.  This sweet and savory shredded pork recipe is one of my family's favorites. (It's one of my favorites, too, since it's so easy!)  I also love that it has so many veggies, which makes it taste yummy and adds an extra serving of veggies to our dinner. 
Served on hamburger buns, this pulled pork is practically a one-dish meal.  To complete dinner, I usually just whip up some sauteed green beans.   Easy, fast, delicious, cheap, and healthy--all in one meal!

What you need:
  • 3 1b pork roast
  • 14 oz can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbs Worchestershire sauce    
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar 
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder 
 Let's get cooking:
1.  Add the tomatoes, onion, carrots, bell pepper, spices, and sugar to the crockpot and stir together.  Add the pork roast on top.

 2.  Cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-5 hours.  Use two forks to gently shred the roast.
And that's it, two steps and you can enjoy your delicious pulled pork dinner!
