NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1 2 -pound boneless pork shoulder, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 onion, roughly chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons spicy yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sliced pickles, plus 2 tablespoons brine
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 slices Texas toast or other thick white bread
  • 1 1/4 cups prepared coleslaw
Directions
  • Combine the pork, onion, garlic, 1/2 cup water, 1 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a 6- to 8-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low, 7 hours.

  • Remove the pork and garlic from the slow cooker to a bowl using a slotted spoon. Strain the juices, discarding the onion; transfer 3/4 cup of the juices to a small saucepan. Add the ketchup, mustard, brown sugar, pickle brine and hot sauce. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is just starting to simmer and thicken, about 5 minutes.

  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet (preferably cast-iron) over high heat. Add the pork and garlic; shred the meat with two forks. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the pork is crisp and golden, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Toast the bread. Top with the pork, sauce and coleslaw. Serve with the pickles.
