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

How to Make Pulled Pork & Crispy Onion Ciabatta Sandwiches

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Enjoy!
