Robynne's Story

Slow cooked BBQ pulled pork on a lightly toasted ciabatta roll with crispy onions will be a hit at your family dinner table too!

Disclaimer: I have always used recipes as a guide and use my instincts and experience to alter or omit ingredients as I cook. Therefore, it has always been a challenge when sharing recipes with others. I doubt I make dishes the same way twice. So, I advise you to use my recipes the same way. Trust your experience and adjust to your personal taste~Robynne

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Just the title of this recipe alone had our mouths watering, so image the state of affairs in the kitchen when we began to smell the aroma of it cooking! This sandwich is all you imagine it to be... and then some.


4-5 lb
pork shoulder roast
1 1/2 c
barbeque sauce
1/4 c
brown sugar
1/2 c
apple cider vinegar
1/2 c
chicken broth
1 Tbsp
worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp
yellow mustard
1 Tbsp
chili powder
3 tsp
onion powder
4 clove
minced garlic
2 tsp
dried thyme
ciabatta rolls, split
3 Tbsp
2 c
french's fried onions

Directions Step-By-Step

Place the pork roast into the slow cooker; pour in the barbecue sauce, apple cider vinegar, and chicken broth. Stir in the brown sugar, yellow mustard, worcestershire sauce, chili powder, onion powder, garlic, and thyme. Cover and cook on High until the roast shreds easily with a fork, 5 to 6 hours.
Remove the roast from the slow cooker, and shred the meat using two forks. Return the shredded pork to the slow cooker, and stir the meat into the juices.
Spread the inside of both halves of ciabatta rolls with butter. In a skillet toast rolls, butter side down, until golden brown. In a small skillet heat French's Fried Onions on low heat until hot and crispy.
Spoon pork onto the toasted rolls (be sure to drain some of the sauce if needed, you don't want a soggy roll :), add additional barbecue sauce if needed and top with onions.

I have always wanted to make my own pulled pork for sandwiches but never could find the right combination.
This recipe is delicious. It is not too sweet or spicy. My husband loved this as it was tender, juicy and very flavorful.
Thank you!
