One of my favorite things to cook is pulled pork because it is SO versatile… you can do BBQ buns, Tacos, loaded potatoes and it gives you leftovers for days! I wanted to create a new way to use my Pulled Pork and man o man did I ever, I swear as I am typing this I am thinking… I must make this again this weekend!
Here are the starring characters for your Pork………..
Lime Juice, Garlic Salt, Paprika spice blend, Cumin, Salt, 2 Jalapeños and 1 onion!
Layer the bottom of a Dutch Oven with the onion and 1 chopped jalapeño then top with a Pork Shoulder. Then it’s a lot of meat so use 1 tablespoon of each spice and the remaining jalapeño on top of your Pork! I just dashed a little lime juice on top for some acid!
Now is the magic…. Pour in 1 small bottle or can of Coke!
Close the lid and bake at 300′ for 6 hours!
Let’s make SLAW!
– 2 Cups of cabbage (pre-packaged works great)
– 2 Chopped up Jalapeños
– 1/4 cup chopped Cilantro
– Dash of Salt and Pepper
– 2 Tablespoons Lime Juice
– 1 teaspoon EVOO
MIX!!!!!!! Refrigerate until dinner!
To Build your Sammies you will need:
– Torta Buns
– Sliced Ham
– Swiss Cheese Slices
– Yellow Mustard
– Sliced Sweet Pickles
When your Pork is done use a fork to shred the meat and distribute the juices!!! Yumm!!!! Don’t worry your pan will come clean after a good soaking!
I like to toast my buns in the oven at 400 for a few minutes before I build my Sammies!
– Mustard the top and bottom buns
– 2 Slices of Ham
– 1 to 2 slices of Pickle depending on your taste!
Then top the pickle with the pork and a slice (or two) of Swiss cheese! Melt the cheese under your broiler until gooey!!!
Then top with your slaw and you have yourself a delish Cuban Sammie your family will love! Matt and I had fries with it and I made homemade Sangria!
These were SOO good and would be perfect for a Party or Game Day eat come Fall!!!
