This week was another one of those times where I didn’t have an exact recipe per say, so I pulled from a bunch of different sources.
Truly this is probably one of the easiest things to make and probably the most hearty – Pulled Pork Sandwiches. Oh yea!
I wanted to buy Pork shoulder/butt (I guess these things are interchangeable…I can tell you the meat on my shoulder versus my butt is not) but alas the butcher didn’t have anything smaller than 6 lbs. So I decided to get a nice manageable 3 lb pork roast. It didn’t yield that nice bone-in-taste but it was easier to shred.
I went home on my lunch break to start cooking the pork.
I began by trimming away that top layer of fat then I rubbed each side with cumin, salt and pepper.
Then I set the crockpot on low and went back to work
When I came home four hours later, I shredded the entire roast and started to make my Pulled Pork sandwich.
I’m only using a small portion of the shredded pork for this sandwich as I have plans for the rest of it. I began by cut up an onion to put in with the pork and coated them both in Rich’s Sweet Heat (a delicious locally made BBQ sauce). I let this bake in the oven at 350F for around 15 minutes.
Then I served it with my favorite side dish – sweet potato fries (those are sweet potatoes in the photo above, already peeled).
Then once everything is all baked and compiled, I had a delicious, hearty pulled pork sandwich with sweet potato fries
