Just making true Southern country-style gravy and biscuits can take an entire morning...and we don't usually have that time! Y'all are gonna love this shortcut recipe!"
http://www.mrfood.com/Sandwiches/Pulled-Pork-Sandwiches-449/ml/1 - Pulled Pork Sandwiches - "In the South, there's a barbecue joint on every corner and each one boasts the best pulled pork sandwiches. The Southern cooks in our test kitchen helped create a version that comes pretty close to that authentic flavor, but with a shortcut or two."
