Slow Cooker Mississippi Pork Sandwiches
My family loved Mississippi Roast and Mississippi Roast Gyros so much that I decided to make a pork roast using the same seasonings and broth and see how it came out. Well, the results were awesome! Same great flavor only this time it was pork instead of beef. I shredded up the pork and let it sit in the juices until we were ready to eat. I served the shredded pork on toasted hoagie buns with melted provolone cheese on top. Everyone loved this meat!
Three reasons you should make this recipe:
- Pork is cheap. A lot cheaper than beef. I bought my pork at Smith’s (Kroger) for around $1.70 per pound.
- This shredded meat is versatile. You can serve it on toasted buns as a sandwich, as a roast with mashed potatoes (or another starch like rice) or even on a salad (that’s how my salad-loving husband ate it).
- It serves a crowd. You can make this recipe without a lot of fuss and serve a large group of people. You can make the instant pot version of the recipe if you prefer too.
A couple of notes about the ingredients:
Pork Roast–there are several types of pork roasts out there. However, for these Slow Cooker Mississippi Pork Sandwiches I used a budget friendly pork loin roast (not pork tenderloin). I find that cooking pork loin in the Instant Pot for a little longer than an hour works very nicely.
Better than Bouillon–I have really come to love and appreciate Better than Bouillon products* lately. I used the chicken base in this recipe. I buy mine in a large container at Costco and it stays good in my fridge for a very long time.
Pepperoncinis–you can find these small pickled yellow/green peppers next to the pickles. They do add a bit of spice to the dish but it is not overwhelming. My 9-year-old ate the roast with no problems.

What Slow Cooker Did You Use?
To make Slow Cooker Mississippi Pork Sandwiches I used my 6 quart oval Kitchenaid slow cooker.* I love this slow cooker (you can see me talking about it in a video here). It cooks low and evenly. I love the medium heat choice because most slow cookers that I’ve seen only have the option of cooking on low or high. If you’re going to buy just one slow cooker, this is the one that I recommend.Print
