Pulled Pork Mini Sandwiches


These pulled pork and spicy slaw mini sandwiches are freaking ridiculous and if you don't try them you're a fool. A fool I say!! Ok, not really but you seriously should eat these bad boys.  


Pulled Pork and Spicy Slaw Mini Sandwiches

Ingredients for Dry Rub
3 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon dry mustard
2 tablespoons coarse sea salt
1 (5 to 7 pound) pork roast

Ingredients for Sauce
3/4 cup Apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 head green cabbage, shredded
2 carrots, grated
1 red onion, thinly sliced
2 green onions (white and green parts), chopped
1 fresh red chile, sliced
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 lemon, juiced
Pinch sugar
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
Several dashes hot sauce
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

(TIP: You can buy pre-made coleslaw in packages at the market and save yourself a lot of shredding time)


1. Rub all of the above DRY ingredients all over your pork roast, place in bowl and let it refrigerate OVERNIGHT. 

2. In the morning place your pork roast in your slow cooker with apple cider vinegar, vegetable oil, ketchup, and black pepper for 6-7 hours on LOW. 

3. Make your coleslaw while your pork is cooking. Combine the cabbage, carrots, red onion, green onions, and chile in a large bowl. In another bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, lemon juice, and sugar. Pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture and toss gently to mix. Add the celery seed, hot sauce, salt, and pepper. Chill for 3 hours in the refrigerator.

4. After about 6 hours your pork should shred right in the slow cooker. Use two forks to shred everything and mix with the juices already in the slow cooker. ((Discard any large pieces of fat) 

** We eat our pork just with the sauce and juices already in the cooker but you can always add your favorite bbq sauce to make it extra "saucey" or make a simple bbq sauce.
