3. Place the pork in a slow cooker and top with the remaining juices from the bowl.

4. Cover and cook on low until tender, flipping once halfway through, about 6 hours.

5. Remove from slow cooker and let cool slightly.

6. Shred the pork into thick chunks with 2 forks. Set pulled pork aside and keep warm in the cooking liquid.

7. Slice the demi baguettes open and smear both sides with mustard.

8. Layer on the Swiss cheese, ham, pulled pork, and pickles.

9. Butter the bottom and top of the outside of the baguettes. Heat skillet over medium high heat.
