Not Your Average Pulled Pork Recipe

Pulled Pork Sandwich

Pulled Pork Sandwiches!

This was originally going to be a Wordless Wednesday post but, I changed my mind. Happens in the best of families. Or so I tell people.

 I mean, I couldn’t just say “Pulled Pork Sandwich” and leave it at that. Especially when there was so much more to tell. Like…I didn’t want you to think that you too could have an awesome looking (and tasting, if you ask me) sandwich just using your regular recipe. Oh no!

This one is special because I made a few substitutions. I wish that I could say they were out of choice because then you would think that I could take a recipe and run with it. But, let’s be real, you’re not here for recipes. And for good reason.

The truth, I was missing a few minor ingredients.

One of them being BBQ sauce. Now, you’re probably thinking, “No problem, we’ll just whip something up”. But, considering I need to read the cooking instructions on Kraft Dinner it was more in the magnitude of “Houston we have a problem!”

But then I remembered reading somewhere that you could replace BBQ sauce for ketchup and HP sauce. So I did.

Then, I realized that I didn’t have any brown sugar or Sage. The sage wasn’t a big issue because I had Thyme and seeing as they’re both green and are spices, I figured we were good to go.

But the real kicker was that I didn’t actually have any pork. In that case, I guess that I can’t even call my creation a “Pulled Pork Sandwich”. So basically, I pretty much made Panna Cotta. Which is tasty in it’s own right but maybe not over a hamburger bun.

Okay, now I’m just pulling your leg. I had pork.

Have any Pulled Pork Recipes of Your Own?

P.S. Please don’t ask me for the recipe. I couldn’t tell you if I tried.

P.P.S. Now you know what you’re having for lunch tomorrow Rene. Well, not exactly I guess.

Disclosure: I received two tablespoons of brown sugar from Eric The Sheriff. He offered to give me barbeque sauce and sage too but where’s the fun in that.

    Oh my. Where to start. Are you sure that’s even pork? Or just some other white meat that you substituted for the missing pork? I thought I heard a beaver screaming earlier.

    I challenge you to make the Panna Cotta! Seriously, a cook off! BTS!

    BTW I love pulled pork. I use the clubhouse seasoning, it’s awesome. And fried onions OMG I can almost smell them.

    LOL well, it looks pretty yummy to me…thanks to Eric the sheriff because I have to have sweetness in sauce! I make mine in a Crockpot with a can of rootbeer and then shred it and put bbq sauce on it….and if I don’t have bbq sauce then I cry.

      You can substitute molasses with one of these –

      1 cup (240 ml) honey
      1 cup (240 ml) dark corn syrup
      1 cup (240 ml) maple syrup
      3/4 cup (180 ml) (160 grams) light or dark brown sugar heated to dissolve in 1/4 cup (60 ml) liquid

    You are hilarious! My Wordless Wednesday posts are never actually wordless, and I refuse to bite my tongue because, well, I just can’t. I’m not good at it and I’ve always been taught to stick with my strengths in life. Talking and words are my strengths. So yes, I admit that I totally just use Wordless Wednesday as an excuse to post a picture while writing as many words as I damn well please. So there, WW gods!
