Pork is on sale for 99 cents a pound at most food markets. Being this recipe is so cheap I splurge on some fresh sub rolls to make it extra special.
2 pounds pork roast, fat on bottom removed
7 tablespoons mustard, divided
1 teaspoon pepper, freshly ground
1 pound fully cooked boneless ham steak, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 jar (16 ounces) whole baby dill pickles, undrained, sliced thick
2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
8 submarine buns, split
Rub pork with 3 tablespoons mustard, season with pepper and place in a 5- or 6-quart slow cooker. Add ham and pickles, including pickle juice. Cover and cook on low until tender, turning halfway through, about 6 hours.
Shred pork with two forks. Sprinkle cheese over meat mixture; cover and cook until cheese melts, about 30 minutes.
When ready to serve, slice rolls and toast lightly in a toaster oven or broiler. Spread remaining mustard evenly over both sides. Using a slotted spoon, top rolls with meat mixture. Serve immediately.
