Family Circle’s May issue has been out for a few weeks now, but I’m still dying to make the Slow Cooker Carolina Pulled-Pork Sandwiches that grace the cover:
How delicious do those sandwiches look? They got me thinking, too, and I realized that I’ve yet to make a sandwich recipe in my slow cooker–and that’s pretty crazy, since they’re often among the easiest-to-make crock-pot dishes.
So I decided to round up some recipes to get me inspired. Now the only hard part will be deciding which one to make first!
Slow Cooker Carolina Pulled-Pork Sandwiches: Our May cover recipe features a sauce made from vinegar, ketchup, brown sugar and spicy mustard–yum!
Slow Cooker Pulled Buffalo Chicken Sliders: Low-calorie and so simple to make–these mini sandwiches only require four ingredients.
Slow Cooker Cuban Pork Sandwich: In my humble opinion, a good Cuban is one of the most perfectly crafted sandwiches.
Slow Cooker Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches: If you can’t make it to Philadelphia any time soon, crafting your own cheese steaks in your crock-pot is a nice consolation. Try this recipe from Pillsbury.
Slow Cooker Smoky Beef Brisket: Brisket sandwiches always make me think of summer, though I honestly enjoy them all year round.
Slow Cooker Sausage and Peppers: The ultimate hero sandwich–and we’ve got a healthy take on it, too.
Slow Cooker Cajun Pork Sandwiches: A twist on pulled pork using zesty spices.
