The pork in this recipe cooks in the slow cooker, which makes this recipe so easy, and the berry glaze is a perfect accompaniment. We didn’t add anything else to our sandwiches, but greens or sliced red onions would be delicious. And you can use what ever kind of sandwich bun you prefer, depending on how big you’d like your sandwiches to be. This recipe would even make great sliders!
