7 Juicy New Ideas for Pulled Pork

We love traditional pulled pork sandwiches. Maybe top 'em with a little coleslaw and some BBQ sauce -- YUM! But every once in a while, we want to pull our pork in a slightly different direction. Here are seven ways to go!

1. Beer and Bourbon Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Beer plus bourbon equals the boilermaker of pulled pork sandwiches. It's spicy, smoky, and sweet, all at once.

2. Pulled Pork Pesto Sandwich

These pulled pork sandwiches combine the best of Southern cooking with the flavors of Italy. Tender pork is combined with onions, peppers, mushrooms, and pesto sauce for filling sandwiches hearty enough for your biggest eaters.

 

3. Orange and Milk-Braised Pork Carnitas

"Milk braising beforehand seems to give the meat a little extra succulence," says Chef John. "The subtle sweetness from the orange is also very nice."

7. Barbecue Lasagna

Pulled pork meets lasagna! "I smoke a 6-10 pound Boston butt ahead of time," says cullinanpat, "slicing off some for a dinner and then pulling the rest for pulled pork sandwiches and of course Barbecue Lasagna."
