By Liliana Moyano for Shine LatinaFinished pulled pork sandwich in all its glory.
My brother-in-law, David, makes a few trays of roasted pork for every major party, which eventually turn into amazing, pulled pork sandwiches. His recipe is simple and can easily be made a day or two in advance. He cooks the pork for six hours and then shreds the meat in its own cooking juices.
I've taken David's famous pork and kicked it up by topping with fried pickles and braising in a Coca-Cola sauce. The vinegar of the pickle balances the sweetness of the pork and adds some crunch to the sandwich.Pork shoulder rubbed with spices, ready to roast.Ingredients
