Ingredients

  1. Check 1 medium red onion, sliced
  2. Check 8tablespoons cider vinegar
  3. Check kosher salt and black pepper
  4. Check 1/4cup sour cream
  5. Check 1/4cup mayonnaise
  6. Check 1 12-ounce package broccoli slaw (4 cups)
  7. Check 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  8. Check 1/4cup tomato paste
  9. Check 1/4cup packed light brown sugar
  10. Check 1tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  11. Check 1tablespoon Dijon mustard
  12. Check 1tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  13. Check 1 1/2pounds pork shoulder, trimmed and cut into 2 pieces
  14. Check 4 thick slices sandwich bread, toasted

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the red onion, 4 tablespoons of the vinegar, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to 3 days.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons of the remaining vinegar, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Fold in the broccoli slaw and refrigerate for up to 12 hours.
  3. In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, mix together the yellow onion, tomato paste, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, Cajun seasoning, the remaining 2 tablespoons of vinegar, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Add the pork and turn to coat.
  4. Cover and cook until the pork is very tender, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours (this will shorten total recipe time). Using 2 forks, shred the pork and mix it into the cooking liquid. Serve the pork and onions on the toast with the broccoli slaw.
