Pulled pork is one of those building-block meats that can be the start of many great dishes. You can add pulled pork to any number of meals, but sometimes it's best to just pour on some of your favorite barbecue sauce and slide it between a few slices of bread or just eat it on its own. To get pulled pork to the perfect level of tender goodness, you need to cook it for several hours. Use your slow cooker, or, if you're going to be home for a while, make a big batch and let it bake in the oven while you do other things around the house.

To freeze it, put 1-cup portions into resealable bags, making sure to add some broth to keep the meat from drying out. Then squeeze out the extra air and store flat.
