Slow-roasted pork is shredded and mixed with a tangy barbeque sauce, then loaded into hoagie rolls and topped with homemade coleslaw. This is not a sandwich for the faint of heart!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine coleslaw mix, pepperoncini peppers, red onion, mayonnaise, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon granulated garlic, Dijon mustard, white sugar, salt, 1/2 teaspoon granulated onion, and lemon pepper in a large bowl.

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).

  • Combine kosher salt, black pepper, 2 tablespoons granulated garlic, 2 tablespoons granulated onion, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper, nutmeg, allspice, and cinnamon together in a bowl.

  • Place pork shoulder in a large roasting pan. Rub with 1/4 cup molasses on all sides and between any crevices. Sprinkle with kosher salt seasoning mixture and rub over all sides.

  • Cover pan tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil and roast pork in the preheated oven until tender and a thermometer inserted reaches 200 degrees F (95 degrees C), 3 to 4 hours. Transfer pork to a cutting board, reserving pan juice, and allow to cool slightly before pulling. Using two forks, shred the pork shoulder into bite-size pieces. Transfer meat to a large bowl and toss with some of the pan juices to keep it moist.

  • Pour reserved pan juices into a large pot over medium heat. Add barbeque sauce, coffee, 1 tablespoon molasses, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, dry mustard, and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat, and cook for 15 minutes. Add shredded pork and stir until warm, about 5 minutes.

  • Fill each hoagie bun with pork mixture. Top with 1 to 2 cups coleslaw. Garnish with 1 tablespoon onion and 1 tablespoon jalapeno.

I made numerous adjustments to this recipes. Here is what I adjusted: ColeSlaw: 3/4 cup mayo; 2 tablespoons of lemon juice; 2 - 3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar; Everything else was the same. My husband did not like the pepperoncini peppers in the coleslaw. Pulled Pork: 2 teaspoons of kosher salt; 2 teaspoons of black pepper; 2 teaspoons of granulated garlic; 2 teaspoons of granulated onion; 1 teaspoons of cayenne pepper; 1 teaspoon of allspice; 16 ozs. of apple juice; I cooked the pork in the crockpot for 8 hours. Every other measurement of other spices remained the same. Sauce: Followed the recipe for the sauce adding some of the apple juice/meat juices to the sauce. The dinner turned out awesome. I have cooked enough to know that amount of spices written in this recipe would have been overwhelming. -Karen J 0606 Read More
