Kosmo's Sweet & Spicy Pulled Pork Sandwich

Kosmo's Sweet & Spicy Pulled Pork Sandwich

Pulled pork is traditionally served on a CWB (cheap white bun) with a drizzle or two of sauce, and coleslaw. That's it! It's simple, easy, and run-down-your-arm delicious.

I'm generally all about tradition, but sometimes it's good to color outside the lines a bit, so here I've added some fruitiness to the party. The combination of moist smokey pork, a fantastic Sweet Apple Chipotle BBQ Sauce, and slaw kicked up with pineapple truly elevates the sandwich.

Ingredients

    Pineapple Slaw

    • 1 bag (16 oz) Tri-color slaw
    • 1/2 cup Pineapple, crushed and drained
    • 1/3 cup Buttermilk
    • 1/4 cup Sugar
    • 3 Tbsp Mayonnaise
    • 1 Tbsp Canola oil
    • 1 tsp Apple cider vinegar
    • 1 tsp Garlic salt
    • 1/2 tsp Celery salt
    • 1/2 tsp Black pepper, ground fresh
    • 1/8 tsp Dirty Bird Hot Rub
    • 2 tsp Lemon juice, squeezed fresh

    Coleslaw Pro Tip: I press the slaw in a pasta fork to remove the juice.

    The Prep

    Step one: Dump all of the pineapple slaw ingredients, except the slaw mix, in a large enough mixing bowl. This will be the dressing. Mix or whisk until all of the dressing ingredients are smooth and well incorporated, and the dressing looks even.

    Step two: Add the slaw to the dressing mix. You might need to fold it to make it fit. Stir so that the slaw becomes evenly coated. Now cover the bowl with saran wrap, and let it sit in the fridge for 2-4 hours. Come back to stir occasionally - 1-2 times throughout should be enough.

    Warm the sauce up in a small pan, or in the microwave in a bowl that is safe for that use. Remember, you don't want it to boil!

    Warm up the buns. If you have the grill already running for another cook, take advantage to give them some nice-looking hash marks (optional, but you definitely get some extra points for the detail).

    The Payoff

    Time to bring everything together! Grab the bottom buns, and top them with 1/2 cup of pork (hot, of course!). Garnish with 2 tablespoons of warm sauce, and 1/4 cup of slaw (drained of excess juice).

    Serve and enjoy your pulled pork sandwich!
