I’m always a little disappointed by pulled pork because it never quite has as much flavor as I’d like. But, I hadn’t tried a new recipe for a while and was unable to resist this one because it just looked so darn delicious. It was incredibly easy to make… just slice a couple onions (and/or fennel if you’ve got it) and rub a spice mixture on the pork roast. Ten hours later and you’ve got perfection.
I’m so glad I took Vanessa’s advice and made a simple coleslaw to go on the sandwich along with the pork. It really took these over the top. I made mine the lazy way and combined some store-bought bagged cabbage mix (by the other bagged greens and salads) with some store-bough coleslaw dressing. I used Hidden Valley brand and it was great. Oh I also used a spicy bbq sauce (KC Masterpiece Hot & Spicy) on my pulled pork because I like a bit of heat. I even went the extra mile and plopped some canned baked beans on my plate. Side dish! HA! By the way, if you aren’t a follower of Vanessa’s blog, you should be. I swear I end up making and loving just about every recipe she posts. I think our taste buds were separated at birth.
