BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Coleslaw and Sweet Potato Salad

BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich with a little bit of cheese, coleslaw, and sweet potato salad.

This was a comforting and quick meal.  To make BBQ pulled pork for the sandwiches, we cooked a pork butt roast in the crockpot earlier in the week with some onion.  Then, when it came to make the BBQ sauce, I used the leftover pork juices from cooking it in the crockpot, minus the fat, and cooked it on the stove with the rest of the sauce ingredients:

  • 2tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp hot sauce
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • salt to taste

I cooked the sauce until it reduced and became thick. Then I added 8 oz of pulled pork meat (2oz per serving for 4 meals) and cooked it in the sauce until well combined and well heated.  From there I just put the pulled pork on bread, with thinly sliced cheese and toasted it.  Really simple and super tasty.

The sweet potato salad was also really easy.  We had roasted sweet potatoes earlier in the week for sweet potato biscuits, and just kept some aside for this meal.

  • 8oz sweet potatoes, pre-roasted and chopped
  • 1 small stalk of celery, chopped
  • 1/2 small red onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 tbsp of mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • Salt and pepper to taste

You just mix all the ingredients up, and enjoy the lovely taste!

The coleslaw was also pretty simple:

  • 1/3 a head of cabbage sliced
  • 3 carrots, shredded
  • 1/2 hakurai turnip, shredded
  • 1/2 kohlrabi, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp of mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1/4 cup of apple cider vingear
  • Salt to taste.

All in all, it was very tasty.  I had to eat my meal early to go off to a wholefoods cooking class at Brookline Adult Ed (which was really enjoyable).  So, no dessert pictures, and not really any dessert, since I got home late.

I am looking forward to and dreading tomorrow, which is the last day of the regular 20 week CSA share.  I’m happy to do my normal distribution, but 1. it’s going to be cold, and 2. it’s last time I will see some members for at least another year.  So, it will be really nice to see everyone again, but I’m sad that only some will be continuing with the extended season. 😦
