Pork and Slaw Sandwiches

Oxmoor House
Yield 15 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)
Pulled pork is an instant classic and slow-cooking it is simply genius. Use packaged cabbage and carrot coleslaw to shave off prep time.

  • 1 (3-pound) boneless pork loin roast, trimmed
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 3/4 cups barbecue sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons hot sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 1/2 cups packaged cabbage-and-carrot coleslaw
  • 1/4 cup canola mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 15 (2-ounce) hamburger buns

How to Make It

  1. Place pork and 1 cup water in a 3- to 4-quart electric slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 7 hours or until meat is tender.

  2. Drain pork, discarding cooking liquid. Return pork to slow cooker; shred with 2 forks. Stir in barbecue sauce and next 3 ingredients (through pepper). Cover and cook on LOW for 1 hour.

  3. Combine coleslaw and next 4 ingredients (through salt) in a bowl; toss well. Place about 1/3 cup pork mixture and about 2 tablespoons slaw on bottom half of each bun; cover with bun tops.

  4. Quick Tip: Using packaged cabbage-and-carrot coleslaw shaves time off the prep. Long gone are the days when you'd have to shred your own.
