Slow-Simmered Pulled Pork Sandwiches

A Carolina specialty, pulled pork gets its name because the finished meat is pulled apart into shreds for easy serving. Pulled pork sandwiches are sometimes topped with coleslaw, adding a cool, bright contrast to the rich meat.

Slow-Simmered Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Trim fat from meat. If necessary, cut meat to fit in a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. Season meat with salt and pepper. In a small bowl stir together the water, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and cumin. Pour over meat in slow cooker.
  2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.
  3. Remove meat from cooker; discard cooking liquid. Use two forks to pull meat apart into coarse shreds, discarding fat; return meat to slow cooker. Stir in 2 cups of Homemade BBQ Sauce or purchased barbecue sauce. If using low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting; cover and cook for 30 to 45 minutes or until heated through. Serve meat mixture in rolls. Pass remaining Homemade BBQ Sauce or purchased barbecue sauce.

From the Test Kitchen

For easy cleanup:

Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your meal is finished cooking, spoon it out of your slow cooker. Once the food is out of your slow cooker liner, simply dispose of the liner. Note: Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
