Pork Rub- Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Pork Rub is Key to a Perfect Pulled Pork Sandwich

Are you stumped about what to make for dinner tonight? Are you trying to eat healthier by cutting down on your red-meat consumption? As the pork producers remind us in their ads, “pork is the other white meat.” While chicken dries out easily if it is not prepared properly, pork is moist and juicy. Pork, especially the larger cuts, is difficult to overcook. There’s no easier and more delicious dinner than a pork picnic shoulder spiced up nicely with pork rub and cooked on low heat for 8 to 10 hours in a slow-cooker, smoker, or barbeque grill.

Pulled Pork Sandwiches Can’t be Beat

If you’ve never tasted a Carolina-style pulled-pork sandwich, you are truly missing out on flavorful culinary experience. Making pulled-pork sandwiches couldn’t be easier. Once you take your slow-cooked slab of pork out of the slow cooker or off the grill or smoker, let it cool slightly, remove any chunks of fat, and then use two forks to shred the meat. After it cooks for hours, it will fall from the bone and be as tender and soft as butter. Since you already seasoned the meat with pork rub, after you shred it it’s ready to be placed on a bun. Top the shredded pork with a vinegar-based barbeque sauce, pickles, and a dollop of coleslaw and you’ve got an authentic, delicious pulled-pork sandwich with very little time spent in the kitchen. The key to success is the rub. If the rub’s right, the flavor will be right.
