Notes

I have substituted two pork tenderloins in place of the pork butt and it has turned out wonderful!
I have also substituted two double chicken breasts in place of the pork and it's wonderful, too!
You can make the sauce ahead of time and reheat it when you're ready to serve it.
You can also add the shredded pork to the sauce and heat it together, if you'd like.
