Pulled pork is one of my favorite indulgent meals whenever we go for barbecue, but I try not to eat it too often since it has a ton of sugar and fat. Luckily it is actually pretty easy to create a healthier, almost as delicious version as home. Usually I use the slow cooker but lately I have been making this simple stove-top version. It's much faster and is perfect for these Pulled Pork Tostadas.
