Mydingr’s Pulled Pork Sandwich From Vickie May’s Recipe Box
This sweet and saucy sandwich became one of our customer favorites when we had our deli. It is a slowly cooked meat that has been flavored with Mydingr’s Barbecue Shake and cooked to perfection. This pork shoulder was put into a slow cooker seasoned and cooked for 10 hours. I would start it the night before and the next morning when you opened the door to the deli the aroma would wake up the sleepiest of taste buds. I would shred it and stir in some of our barbecue sauce making it ready for sandwiches. We served it on a roll with extra sauce and topped it with Cole slaw. I am proud to open my recipe box and share one of my recipes with you.
Shopping List: Pork shoulder or Pork butt (FYI they are one in the same) Red Wine (your favorite) Olive Oil Fresh garlic Mydingr’s Barbecue Shake Mydingr’s Sweet and Spicy Sauce Rolls (French roll, Dutch crunch roll, sour dough roll)
Recipe: 5-8 lbs. pork 1 cup red wine 1 Tbl. Olive oil 5 Tbl. Mydingr’s Barbecue Shake 3 cloves of garlic
Place your pork into a crock pot or a pressure-cooking pot* making sure that the fat side is up. Then pour the wine over the top, just a little secret I have used beer instead of wine and it taste great. Next drizzle the olive oil over the fat cap so that the spice will stick to it. Then sprinkle the Mydingr’s Barbecue Shake evenly over the top of the pork and lay the 3 cloves of garlic on top.
If you are using a crock pot to cook this pork it will take 8-10 hours depending on the weight of your pork. It’s always best to start it the night before you are going to use it that way you know you have enough cook time. Or get up early in the morning like you do to get your turkey in the oven on Thanksgiving. When done, drain off the fat and shredded the meat. I use a pair of tongs or a meat fork for shredding. Some people like to add the sauce to the pork after it is shredded then stir and serve it on a roll. At my house we prefer to put the pork on the roll and pour the sauce on top, the choice is yours. Then top with Cole slaw and you will be amazed at how delicious this sandwich can be.
*If you are using an electric pressure cooker, follow the instructions above the only difference will be the cook time. Cook time in a pressure cooker (using the meat setting) will be 2 1/2 hours. I know that sounds like a long time but it sure cuts down on the original time it takes when using a crock pot. I hope you enjoy this wonderful sandwich. It’s great for a meal or feeding a crowd.
