Apple Roast PorkSandwiches

Pin It
Yes, this looks just like a pulled pork sandwich.
This is not just any pulled pork sandwich.
This is an Apple Roast Pork sandwich.
We had the Ranch Dressing version last night.
I'll show you the bbq sauce version, too.
Wait for it.
Start with a pork roast. Trim all the visible fat.
You can roast it in the oven or slow cook it in the crock pot.
Your choice.
I chose the crock pot since it is about 500 degrees outside.
Not really.
But it IS 101 degrees today.
If you tell me, "but it's a dry heat" I will throw something at you.
I didn't want to heat up kitchen with an oven on for hours.

Douse the entire roast with Worcestershire sauce. Pick up the roast, douse the bottom, put it in the crock pot, douse the top and sides.

Makes a pretty puddle.

Now pack on the brown sugar. Press it on the top and sides. Don't worry if it falls off.

Pour apple juice onto the bottom, but not on the roast so you don't wash off the brown sugar and Worcestershire.

Cover and cook on Low for about 6 hours.

Cut the hot roast into chunks. My roast was small so I cut it in 4 pieces. If yours is larger, cut it into more chunks.

Use an electric mixer and shred. It is quite magical. Don't be shy. Just push the beaters down onto a chunk and turn it on low. It'll flip and shred it into pieces in a few seconds.
Don't over mix or you'll turn it into shreds that are too fine.

Nice, mostly uniform, lovely shredded pork. Take the beaters out and mix it all up with all the delicious juices in the bottom of the crock pot. Pile it up on hamburger or hot dog buns.
Add your favorite toppings.
We have two favorite ways of serving this sandwich.

Piled on a hamburger bun, shredded lettuce, sliced tomato, salt and pepper, and lots of Ranch Dressing.


Piled in a hot dog bun (hot dog buns make eating this sort of sandwich easier, don't you think? It all stays together like it's in a little boat), sliced PepperJack cheese, shredded lettuce, sliced tomato, Ranch Dressing, BBQ sauce, sliced green onion.


Wanna know what else?
((I can't see you.))
((I can't hear you.))
((I'm gonna just pretend you wanna know what else.))

Here is the what else:
Try this Apple Roast Pork in a corn tortilla with the same lettuce, tomato, cheese, and Ranch Dressing. Especially if you start with a soft corn tortilla and deep fry it for a few seconds.


So Good.
