Slow-cooker Pulled Pork Lettuce Wraps

This is a big hit in our house at dinnertime all year round. Everytime I make this it’s like magic for me. I put the meat in the slow-cooker in the morning before I go to work and when I come home it’s ready to eat—-super easy!

No crisis if you don’t have a slow-cooker. You can also just make this in a covered casserole dish or dutch oven in your regular oven at 190F (95C) for the same amount of time.

Serve it with coleslaw and optional brioche buns for the non-low-carbers.
