Pulled Pork Sandwiches

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on September 5, 2008

Pulled Pork is best a few days after you’ve done a pork roast!

Leftover Pork from Roast ($2)
Buns ($.50-$1)
BBQ Sauce ($.50)
Relish or other favorite condiment ($.25)
4-6 Carrots, peeled and shredded/grated ($.75)
1/2 cup raisins ($.35)
1-2 T mayo ($.10)
1 small can crushed pineapple, save 1 T juice ($.50)

1. Take your leftover pork, pull it apart and soak it in your favorite BBQ! Leave it in the fridge a few days until you’re ready to eat it up!
2. Make carrot raisin salad. Mix grated carrots, raisins, pineapple, mayo and pineapple juice.

Cost $4.95

I really like the ‘leftover’ recipes! I’d love to see more of them! It saves me a ton of time.

which pork roast recipe do u use for these sandwiches? I saw one with apple cider/pears and a “regular” one. Pork roast is $1.38# and rump roast $1.48# for a new Pay Low that just opened. GEEZZZZZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have found we really enjoy pork loin roasts. BBQ pork sandwiches I have found threw trial and error that I cook it in the crock pot but elevate it off the bottom of the pan using 2 medal cookie cutters then coat it with thin layer of BBQ sauce. This is a dry cooking method and keeps all of the moisture within the pork loin and after 8 hours it just shreds into pieces. Then I finish shredding it and adding BBQ sauce until I am happy. I make BBQ pork sandwiches and make home made rolls.. We add baked beans and Cole slaw to make it unforgettable!!

Thanks for sharing placing cookie cutters on the bottom of the crock pot. I always hate cooking meats and having it sit in the greasy liquid in the bottom of crock pot and dislike using foil balls. I will be cooking pork tomoorow and trying your method.
