We made the ultimate pulled pork sandwiches this weekend. They were good for so many reasons. First the recipe for the pulled pork is for a crock pot. You basically do two steps and you get a pot full of pulled pork.
When making the pulled pork we used a new BBQ sauce from True Made Foods. I think it might be a new favorite. True Made Foods uses vegetables to make their products taste better and to sweeten them naturally, cutting added sugar in half. Have you ever look seen how much sugar is in BBQ sauce? Even thought there is half the added sugar of leading brands, the BBQ taste is amazing.
Second, the bun is brioche. Love brioche.
Finally the sandwich is layered with cheese and broccoli coleslaw. This adds some crunch with the pulled pork.
Best. Sandwich. Ever.
*True Made Foods provided me with a sample pack of three sauces, including this BBQ. All opinions are my own.
Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: plus 15 hours in the slow cook
Keywords: slow-cooker bbq pork
Ingredients (Makes 8 sandwiches)
- 4 lbs pork roast (shoulder or butt)
- 2 large onions
- 1 bottle True Made Foods barbecue sauce
- Extra barbecue sauce, for serving
- 8 slices sharp cheddar cheese
- 8 brioche hamburger buns
- 1 lb broccoli coleslaw
InstructionsFor the Pulled Pork:
Put in the roast and cover with water. Cover and cook on LOW for about 10 hours overnight.
Remove the meat and discard all liquid. With two forks, shred the meat, discarding any remaining fat, bones or skin. Most of the fat will have melted away.
Put sliced onion into the clean slow cooker bowl. Return the shredded meat to the bowl and stir in the barbecue sauce. Continue to cook for another 3 to 4 hours on LOW.
Lightly toast brioche buns.
Place a slice of cheddar cheese on the bottom of the bun. Top with a large pile of the BBQ pulled pork. Add broccoli slaw and cover with top of bun. Serve immediately.
