This grilling season, I was hoping to add a some different flavors to our grill. After trying a great Asian recipe, this recipe came into my mind to add some great flavors to the pork hoagie I usually make from the grill. My family loved it and we all hope you'll enjoy it too!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Holy, hoisin! We fell hard for this savory delight of a sandwich. The slaw really heats things up, so adjust the amount of jalapeno to suit your tastes.
