Pulled Pork Sandwich and BBQ Sauce

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Pulled pork sandwiches are a classic, especially with a little barbecue. This recipe is simple and easy to make. You’ll only need three ingredients: jalapenos, onions and pork shoulder (or butt).

Get out the crock pot and make a bed of onion slices at the base. Pile on the pork shoulder and then pour a jar of jalapenos on top. After 8 hours of this cooking on low, the meat should be tender. It should flake off with the use of a fork. It will have a savory flavor with just a mild kick.

When it’s done remove the onions, jalapenos, juices and any extra fat. Then place the pork back in the crock pot and start shredding it (two forks should work for this). The pork should be tender and fall off the bone. Remove the bone from the pot.

Serve the pulled pork on a bun with some bbq. You can use a store bought one or try out this homemade recipe.

The ingredients you’ll need are water, ketchup, chili sauce, brown sugar, dry mustard and pickle juice (optional). Just combine the water, mustard and sugar, making sure that it’s well mixed (no lumps). Then add the rest of the ingredients to the sauce. Heat everything until there is a mild boil. Turn the heat off and serve the sauce over some pulled pork. This is a savory dish you can brag about: homemade pulled pork with bbq sauce, not too shabby.
