Sandwich of the Month – Pulled Pork & Coleslaw

It’s May and considering we did a vegetarian sandwich last month, we thought we’d do something full of meat. This sandwich requires that you make most of the components from scratch but it is well worth the work and pulled pork is honestly the easiest thing in the world to make. Get yourself a pork neck or pork shoulder and braise it in ginger ale or coke for 3-4 hours until it’s fall-apart tender. Let cool.

The star of the sandwich isn’t the pulled pork though – it’s the BBQ sauce and the bun. Homemade BBQ sauce that is. To make BBQ sauce you need a good mix of sour, savoury, hot and sweet. This Kansas City BBQ Sauce is amazing with pulled pork.

Now for the bun. Church buns are soft, white split rolls that can be found at church potlucks all over North America, from Mississippi to Manitoba. They usually come in a bag of 24 in white or whole wheat. Do not buy the whole wheat, this is one time when only white will do.

Now just slice your cabbage and mix up some creamy coleslaw. Split the church buns and toast lightly. To assemble, toss the pulled pork with the warm BBQ sauce and scoop onto the bun, top with coleslaw. Eat.

certainly delicious, this sandwich also looks a little lonely

Simple. Or you could throw a rack of ribs in the oven while that pork is braising and serve this sandwich with a garnish of RIBS!
