This pulled pork smells just wonderful while it cooks... and the taste of the finished dish is not a bit of a disappointment. The meat is so tender and really just falls apart when it comes out of the crock pot.
If you don't have crushed tomatoes on hand, use diced or whole, and just whizz them in your blender till pureed. The result will be very similar to crushed tomatoes right from the can.
