I’m reprising this post because this is a great recipe for a Super Bowl party…slow cooked, pulled pork sandwiches topped with my grandmother’s amazing Cole Slaw. The best thing about this pork recipe is it’s done in a slow cooker. The prep is really simple, the cooking is low and slow (it can be done overnight), the resulting flavors are incredible and, best of all, it makes dozens of sandwiches with very little effort…perfect for a party. And if any pork is left over (not likely) just divide it up into serving size portions (4-6 oz each), wrap in plastic wrap and freeze them. When you get that irresistible craving for a pulled pork sandwich,Â just pop one in the microwave, top it with some bbq sauce, put it in a steamed bun, slap on some cole slaw and, in minutes, I guarantee you’ll be wallowing in the throes of pulled pork nirvana!

We all grew up loving this cole slaw that my grandmother made…of course, she never wrote anything down, so it was up to my mother to perfect it and record it for posterity. The recipe has been passed down and now it’s become an essential ingredient in the perfect Slow Cooked Pulled Pork Sandwich that I wrote about awhile back. Although the cole slaw tastes great as soon as it’s made, the flavor definitely improves over time, so the best thing to do is to make it a day before you want to eat it. The slaw makes a great addition to any meal, but it’s really incredible on a sandwich of that leftover Thanksgiving turkey (or even store bought turkey breast) on a couple of slices of good Jewish rye bread, or even better, on my Sourdough Whole Wheat No Knead Pumpkin Seed Bread.
I think this may be my favorite breakfast sandwich. It puts all those fast food breakfast sandwiches to shame and it couldn’t be easier. It consists of one egg over easy, topped with melted extra sharp cheddar cheese and crispy bacon on a soft roll.
One of the secrets to making the sandwich is how to get the cheese melted perfectly without overcooking the egg.Â The best way to quickly melt the cheese is, as soon as the egg is flipped, lay the cheese on top of the egg and drop a teaspoon of water into the pan next to the egg and immediately cover the pan.Â The resulting steam will melt the cheese in seconds. This technique also works great for cheeseburgers.
Another really cool tool to have in your kitchen is whatâ€™s called a bacon (or steak) press.Â One of its many uses is to keep bacon flat as it cooks…itâ€™s especially good for the B in BLTs.
Do you love the taste of slow-cooked pulled pork sandwiches, but don’t have the time or energy to prepare them from scratch? This may be one of the best pulled pork sandwiches ever! Of the great all-time euphoric sandwich-eating experiences, a slow-cooked, pulled pork sandwich topped with my grandmother’s amazing Cole Slaw has to be right near the top of the list. The best thing about this pork recipe is it’s done in a slow cooker Crock-Pot. The prep is really simple, the cooking is low and slow (it can be done overnight), and the resulting flavors are really incredible.
Pulled pork sandwiches are a classic comfort food that has been a favorite of many for years. They are perfect for any occasion, whether it’s a family dinner or a backyard barbecue with friends. With a little bit of preparation, you can have a tasty pulled pork sandwich ready in no time.
One of the best things about pulled pork sandwiches is their versatility. They can be customized to your liking with various toppings and sauces. For example, just add some tangy coleslaw, sweet and spicy barbecue sauce, jalapenos or crispy fried onions. The possibilities are endless, and you can create a unique and flavorful sandwich every time.
The secret to making the perfect pulled pork sandwich is slow-cooking the pork. Slow cooking allows the meat to become tender and juicy, while also infusing it with flavor. To make pulled pork, you’ll need a slow cooker. The process is simple: season the pork with your favorite spices and let it cook for several hours until it falls apart with a fork.
When it comes to seasoning the pork, in my recipe below, I included the ingredients for my Porkman’s Pork Rub, but you can get as creative as you want. I also always add a dash of old-school classic Colgin Liquid Smoke for a delicious smoky flavor.
After the pork is cooked, the next step is to shred it. This can be done with a fork, or you can use a handheld mixer or a stand mixer with a paddle attachment for faster results. Shredding the pork is important because it allows the sauce to penetrate the meat and gives the sandwich its signature texture.
Once you have the pulled pork ready, it’s time to assemble the sandwich. The traditional way to make a pulled pork sandwich is to use a soft hamburger bun, but you can also use a baguette or a ciabatta roll. Start by adding a generous portion of pulled pork to the bun, and then add your favorite toppings. My favorite toppings are coleslaw, pickles, onions, and jalapeños.
If you’re looking for a healthier option (and I don’t know why you would!), you can also try using lettuce wraps or whole wheat buns instead of traditional buns. This will reduce the amount of refined carbs and calories in your sandwich while still maintaining its delicious flavor.
How to Freeze Individual Portions
After I cook and shred the pork, I divide it up into serving-size portions (4-5 oz each), wrap each tightly in plastic wrap and freeze them. When I get that unmistakable craving for a delicious pulled pork sandwich, I just pop one in the microwave for a couple of minutes. Then I top it with some bbq sauce (Bull’s Eye Original Barbecue Sauce is my favorite for this dish), put it in a steamed bun, slap on some cole slaw and, in minutes, I’m in pulled pork nirvana with what is absolutely one of the best sandwiches ever!
In conclusion, pulled pork sandwiches are a delicious and versatile treat that can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere. By using a slow cooker or pressure cooker, you can prepare a large batch of pulled pork in advance and freeze it for later use. With the right toppings and sauces, you can create a unique and flavorful sandwich every time. So why not give it a try and see for yourself why pulled pork sandwiches are so popular?
