This pulled pork sandwich recipe is made in a slow cooker. The pork is braised with citrus, cider vinegar and molasses. The end result is unbelievably delicious.
This pork will cook for hours at very low heat. Once it is cooked we will shred it and cover it in juicy barbecue sauce. Serve it in rolls with a nice slice of pickle on top as a wonderful complement.
Cooking pork very slowly renders a tender, juicy meat that can be used in many ways. You can eat it as is with some rice, shred it and mix it with BBQ sauce for sandwiches, shred it and use it for tacos or burritos or as a filling for empanadas. These are just some suggestions!
Here is what you are going to need for this scrumptious pulled pork sandwich:
Makes eight to ten sandwiches
4 to 5 pounds of pork butt
4 large oranges, juiced
4 large pieces of orange rind – whites removed
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup dark molasses
Salt & Pepper
BBQ Sauce of preference
Rolls/ Pickle Slices
Heat a large pot with some olive oil. Generously season the pork with salt and pepper. Place the pork in the heated pan and brown evenly on all sides.
Place the browned pork into a slow cooker. Whisk together the orange juice, vinegar and the molasses. Pour over the pork. Place the orange rinds on the sides. Cook on low for 8 hours.
Remove the pork from the liquid and allow it to cool. Shred the meat – getting rid of the excess fat – and place it in a large skillet. Add as much bbq sauce as desired and mix well. Heat completely through.
Serve pork inside rolls with extra bbq sauce and pickles. Enjoy!
