Ingredients

Directions

  1. Place the pork in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Rub with the brown sugar, chili powder, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Add ½ cup of the vinegar and ½ cup water.
  2. Cook, covered, until the meat is tender and shreds easily, on high for 4 to 5 hours or on low for 7 to 8 hours (the low setting will make total cooking time 8 hours, 10 minutes).
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, granulated sugar, the remaining 2 tablespoons of vinegar, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Add the coleslaw mix and toss to combine; cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  4. Before serving, transfer the pork to a bowl, discarding the liquid. Using 2 forks, shred the meat. Mix in the barbecue sauce. Serve the pork on the rolls with the coleslaw and the pickles and chips, if desired.

Quick Tip

Charcoal grill
Mild and tender, pork loin and tenderloin work well with many cooking methods―roasting, pan-searing, grilling, sautéing. Tougher (and less expensive) cuts, like shoulder and butt, are best suited to slow cooking and braising.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
