How Do You Make These Spicy Peanut Pulled Pork Sandwiches?

Start by seasoning a pork butt with salt, pepper, cumin and garlic powder. Yes you have to use a lot of seasoning here, so don’t start with the “too much salt”
 comments. We’re talking about 5-6 pounds of pork here, so if you don’t use enough seasoning it will be bland in flavor.

Let the pork butt cook with beer and chicken broth for a good 8 hours, it might even go a little longer depending on the size of your roast. Once the pork is tender, shred it and toss it with some of the juices from the slow cooker. Or you can return the shredded pork to the slow cooker and toss with the juices to keep warm.

Now add the pork onto rolls and top with some of the spicy peanut sauce and the Asian slaw.
