So, last night I made my pulled pork sandwich with french fries. I usually make my own fries from potatoes, but I got home a lot later than usual and the frozen bag won! Cole slaw is on my pulled pork sandwich because it's good! I lived in North Carolina over a non-consecutive seven years. While there, I drank sweet tea and ate barbecue. North Carolina pulled pork sandwiches are often served with cole slaw, but many eat it on the sandwich. The first time I saw this, I screamed a big "EWAH!" McArthur had me to try it, along with a hot dog "Cook Out" style, which is with chili and cole slaw. Needless to say, I liked it! It's the only way I like barbecue sandwiches now. Look at it like a dressing on a sandwich, similar to mustard or mayonnaise (even though I secretly hate mayonnaise, which is why I can't use it in my slaw). I hope you give it a try, if you haven't already!
- Place pork loin in slow cooker and season. Cook on low for about 7 hours.
