Pork Barbecue Sandwich

Mother Nature is still fooling around with us here in the midwest.  It has been raining or overcast and chilly for days now.  I know that within six weeks, I'll be complaining about the heat and trying to keep the house as cool inside as it is outside right now!!  In the meantime, since it's still too cold to comfortably barbecue outside, I pulled out the leftover frozen pork from the roast we had a few weeks ago and turned it into this delicious sandwich.  The barbecue sauce recipe was given to me years ago by a friend when we lived in Texas and it is our favorite.

Pulled Pork Barbecue Sandwich

Pulled pork, about two cups for two sandwiches

For the barbecue sauce:

2 cups of ketchup
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1Tbsp Wright's Liquid Smoke
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce

Put all the ingredients into a saucepan and simmer over low heat until thoroughly mixed and heated through.

Stir the pork into one cup of the sauce.

I'm a purist here in that I like plain mustard top and bottom and a pickle on the side.



  1. oh oh oh be still my heart.... i want one NOW.

  2. I'm with Sandra!! LOL! Lunchtime here right NOW! ;) This sounds delicious, Bonnie. Mother Nature keeps tricking us, too... 90 one day... then down in the 30s... well, only the 40s this morning, but still! ;) blessings ~ tanna
