Total time
20 minutes
1 lb shredded pork ((from the slow-roasted pork loin recipe)
4 pretzel buns
BBQ sauce ((or your preference, or liquid smoke (optional))
1 tsp butter
1 Tbsp mayonnaise (regular or spicy)
Dill pickle slices or spears

1: Place your cooked, shredded pork in a saucepan. Heat on stovetop at medium heat for 2-3 minutes.

2: Mix in your favorite BBQ sauce to the pork or add a few teaspoons of liquid smoke. Stir for a minute then turn down heat to low. Add a bit of water as needed for juicier results.

3: Slice open your buns and butter the inside of each. Place in a toaster oven or conventional oven at 400F for 5 minutes, making sure not to burn them. You want them lightly golden. (You may also use a toaster, but be sure to butter the buns after you’ve toasted them.)

4: Remove buns from heat. Spread a light amount of a spicy mayonnaise on the inside of each bun.

5: Top with 1/2 cup shredded pork onto the bottom bun.

6: Add some sliced pickle spears on top (Fun tip: add a few teaspoons of red chili flakes to my dill pickle jar a few days before for a little heat).

7: Add the top bun on the mound of pork goodness. Enjoy!
