Pulled Pork and Sauteed Onion Sandwiches

If you're looking for something different than hamburgers and hot dogs for your upcoming Labor Day BBQ then look no further. 

These sandwiches are amazing. They aren't the typical 'smothered in BBQ sauce ' type of pulled pork sandwich (which my husband has never been a fan of anyway), but the pork is tender, moist and perfectly seasoned. 

This is such a simple and easy recipe that is sure to tickle your taste buds and fill your tummy. It's a huge hit in our home!

Pulled Pork and Sauteed Onion Sandwich

The Pork:
2 1/2-3 1/2 lbs. pork loin roast
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. powdered ginger
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 Tbsp. dried minced onion

Add all ingredients to a crock pot and cook on high for 4-5 hours or on low all day. Shred meat once done and let sit in the leftover sauce for about 10-15 minutes. Adjust sauce amount to fit the size of your roast. This makes quite a bit of meat and is great used in burritos and salads for left-overs, not to mention left over sandwiches.

The Onions:
Thinly slice 2-3 med onions and sauteed with 2 TBSP olive oil on med/low heat. Move them around in the pan often so they don't burn. They are done once soft, semi-transparent and golden brown.

The Bun:
Use any type of bun or roll you would like. I like to heat and/or toast my buns under the broiler or in the same pan the onions were cooked in. Spread a dab of mayo on your bun if you'd like.

The Cheese:
Use 1 slice of Swiss or provolone per bun. Melt it on the bun in the microwave or oven.

The Sandwich:
Once you have all your ingredients prepared build your sandwich from the bottom up . . . bun, cheese, pork, onions, bun. Time to eat!
