pulled pork sandwiches

Along with the lovely salad, we made pulled pork sandwiches. Yum. I've seen these little sandwiches of love showing up on classy menus, and well, good for them. It's a super cheap cut of meat and the results are heavenly. We made a homemade cole slaw to top em, and got Hawaiian sweet rolls a la costco for the delicious buns.

If you have a crock pot, you really should look these up and make them, oh I don't know...tomorrow. We got the meat and seasoned it with the below items. You really can't go wrong here and should hopefully have most of these spices anyways!

2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons ground cumin
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground oregano
4 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon pepper

Camille made a homemade bbq sauce. Seeing as she's miss personal chef, she didn't write down the recipe and went from what she knew would work- ketchup, molasses, onions, oh my. Sooo good. This was quite possibly the secret ingredient that really caught all the attention. To make the pork itself, we got Pork Shoulder (butt works as well) and rubbed it well with the spice rub. We then seared it just to get a good golden color and then put it in the crock pot. It was covered with beef broth, coffee, and a little bit of beer. Delicious. It cooked for about 8 hrs, was taken out, pulled apart, and combined with the bbq sauce. I'm getting hungry just remembering these...
