Photo: Romulo Yanes Hands On Time: 10 mins Total Time: 5 hrs 10 mins Yield: 6 serves Jump to Nutrition Facts Ingredients 2 pounds boneless pork shoulder or butt, trimmed of excess fat ¼ cup packed brown sugar 1 teaspoon chili powder 1 garlic clove, chopped kosher salt and black pepper ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons cider vinegar ¼ cup mayonnaise ¼ cup sour cream ½ teaspoon granulated sugar 4 cups coleslaw mix (2/3 of a 14-ounce package) 1 cup barbecue sauce 6 soft sandwich rolls, split bread-and-butter pickles and potato chips, for serving Directions 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. 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). 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. 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.
