Pulled pork sandwiches are great with traditional bbq sauce but if you are looking for something a little bit different, using a southern mustard based bbq sauce is a great option as well. The mustard bbq sauce is similar to the regular sauce but the primary ingredient is yellow mustard. The sauce is very easy to prepare and you probably already have most or all of the ingredients on hand already. In this recipe a pork roast is rubbed with seasoning and then cooked in the slow cooker, shredded and mixed with the prepared mustard bbq sauce. I like to serve the pork on sandwiches and you can also add some coleslaw to the sandwiches or serve it on the side. Enjoy.
