Summer is a Time for Sandwiches

I think you can't really have summer without having at least one pulled pork sandwich. Am I right? Here is a new recipe that we found, which we liked very much.

Slow Cooker Pulled Jerk Pork Sandwiches


1 boneless pork shoulder (2 1/2 lbs.)
1 tablespoon Jamaican jerk seasoning (dry)
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1 cup cola
2 cups barbecue sauce
8 sandwich buns


Spray 3 1/2 to 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Remove fat from pork. Rub jerk seasoning over pork; sprinkle with thyme. Place pork in slow cooker. Sprinkle with onion. Pour cola over pork.

Cover; cook on Low heat setting 8 to 10 hours.

Remove pork from slow cooker; reserve 1/2 cup juices. Use 2 forks to pull pork into shreds. Place pork in slow cooker. Stir in barbecue sauce and reserved juices. Increase heat setting to High. Cover; cook 30 to 45 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Spoon filling onto bun.

  1. Niel liked this better than the other one I use because of the sweetness the cola gives it. Both good solid recipes and always welcome for a crowd.
