You'll be licking your fingers when you eat this tender and juicy pork sandwich. It has a tangy vinegar-based sauce with a hint of spice. The creamy, fresh slaw brings this dish to a whole new level and the crispy bun brings it all together.
  • 1 package (about 2 lbs) Smithfield Garlic and Herb Marinated Pork Filet
  • ½ cup zesty Italian dressing
  • ½ cup white soda
  • 4 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 package (about 10 ounces) shredded cabbage
  • 8 rolls (I used kaiser rolls)
  • Red pepper sauce
  1. In a slow cooker, combine the meat, dressing, soda, 2 Tablespoons vinegar, red pepper, and onion powder. Give it a little flip then place the lid on and cook on high about 4 hours (8 hours on low) or until the meat is tender and shreds apart easily.
  2. While that's cooking up, make the slaw. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, brown sugar, and 2 Tablespoons of vinegar until smooth. Fold in the cabbage until everything is evenly coated. Refrigerate this for at least 1 hour (I left it in until the meat was finished cooking.)
  3. Once the meat is finished cooking, shred it apart using a fork, tongs, or both.
  4. Serve up the sandwiches! I used toasted rolls then layered on the pulled pork, coleslaw, and some hot pepper sauce to give it a little kick.
I made these sandwiches to not have much spiciness to them until you add the sauce. I did this as my little one was eating some of it. If you're like me and you want a little extra kick, add more crushed red pepper flakes or even some cayenne pepper!
