A little spicer than I like especially for outside pieces of pork. I think I will do some different spices next time. I used pre-made coleslaw mix so this was a really easy supper. The pulled pork tastes better the secon day!

Very good. The slaw cuts the spice of the pork. Super easy meal

We really loved this recipe. It made a ton of pork, so I wound up sticking half of it in the freezer. I recently discovered a great homemade pita recipe, so I used that for our pita, which I think takes this to the next level. Regular store-bought pita doesn't compare. Not sure if it's okay to include links in reviews, but just in case, here is the pita recipe I use: http://www.halfbakedharvest.com/traditional-greek-pita-bread/. I made the dough the night before, along with getting the pork seasoned and then cooked up the pita right before we ate. And a quick tip for shredding the pork - throw it in a stand mixer (maybe a hand mixer would work, as well, but I haven't tried). It takes less than 30 seconds and is well worth the time to wash and dry the mixer bowl and paddle. :)

It was interesting. I used coconut milk Greek yogurt by So Delicious since I can't eat dairy. I also used pork chops instead of pork loin because it was more cost effective. Everything turned out great. It was very good!

Super easy in the slow cooker and tasty too. Was a bit of a mess on a pita so ate the second serving in a bowl.

We don't usually like pork, but this was so amazing! Very juicy and the flavors and textures were perfect together!
