BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Texas clearly values BBQ Brisket over any other protein. That said, I will try and enjoy it all and truth be told I probably go 50/50 on beef and pork. I also enjoy the vinegar that you find in the Southeast. So when I asked Jill what she would like this week, she said let’s do BBQ pulled pork sandwiches.

For tonight I didn’t go all out with a coleslaw topping or anything but it’s always welcomed on a pig sammie. I did make a potato salad with two russets some mayo, sour cream, pickled jalapenos and green onions. I won’t include the recipe because I truly winged it. That said you can search my blogs for sides like potato salad or beans etc.

After eight hours in the bath the pork can’t help but get fall apart tender. In fact, fishing it out of the crockpot was a challenge. I also like to add sauce only on the top of the mound of pork to let the pork shine. Always butter and griddle your buns until you get a nice brown “crunch” texture. This will help it hold up to the moisture of the overall sandwich.

Ingredients:
Pork Shoulder
1 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar
1 cup of water
1 onion sliced
4 cloves minced garlic
2 tbs of yellow mustard
2 tbs of ketchup
Buns

Rub
Equal parts depending upon size
1 tbs of Chili Powder
1 tbs of Onion Powder
1 tbs of Garlic Powder
1 tbs of White or Brown sugar
Pinch of cumin and cayenne optional.

Directions:
1. Take your shoulder and apply your dry rub and let it sit. You can let it sit overnight if you so choose.

2. In your crock pot on high heat set for 8 hours add your sliced onions, minced garlic, apple cider vinegar, water, mustard and ketchup. Lay your rubbed shoulder in your crockpot. It should almost cover the shoulder with about 1/4 of it sticking out. Cover and walk away. Around the 7 to 8 hour time you can turn it but it will be done. Shred the pork

3. Toast your bun, apply your pork and your favorite sauce on top. I picked up a bottle of Dreamland BBQ sauce out of Alabama. It’s a nice blend of Carolina and TX sauces. Serve with Beans, potato salad or whatever you like. See my side recipes for ideas.
