Pulled Pork Sandwich with Sweet Baby Rays

I love anything with Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce.  For real...anything.  But used as a key flavor filler in pulled pork is perfect.  Mixed with steak seasoning and Coke (a-cola)?  Yes please.  One of our favs.

Pulled Pork Burger with Chili & Cheese

Someone has finally combined my two favorite things (1) pulled pork and (2) the burger.  Toss on some chili or class it up with brie, red onion chutney and bacon.  So good!

Pulled Pork Pizza

Don't confine your pulled pork options to just sandwiches and wraps.  It makes sense to toss it on a pizza too.  Switch the regular cheese up to a smoked gouda or monterey jack and kick it up a notch.

Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Fajitas

Pull the chicken out of your fajitas and replace it with pulled pork (of course).  This one's a great mix of smoked pork and spicy Mexican.  Plus, guac and sour cream always makes everything better.

Root Beer Pulled Pork Sandwich

I mean, why aren't we cooking everything in root beer?  Don't freak out because the pork won't taste like root beer (or a root beer float like I prayed), but totally gives this a sweet flavor that's pretty addicting.

Mild Pulled Pork

For those of us who don't like it too spicy.  Who are you, by the way?  Come forward.  This one is more on the sweet and tangy side, which pretty much makes it a great option for the kiddos who aren't into "hot."

Pulled Pork with Sweet Onion Sauce

Slow cooked in a beef broth, I loved the sweet onion sauce.  Plus the purple cabbage really did make it more colorful, which is how I justified eating 3 of these.  And the mini French rolls didn't have an attitude either.  Although they did smoke.

Balsamic Honey Pulled Pork Sandwich

So this one was my absolute favorite.  Balsamic honey with Asian slaw and blackberry jam?  Like nothing you've ever had before.  Brilliant.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with Apple Cider Sauce

Another great Fall favorite thanks to the apple cider sauce.  This one is more sweet and tangy than hot and spicy, but check out the recipe to learn how to kick it up.

We love everything “pulled pork,” but how many pulled pork sandwiches can you really have? 10? 34? After that you’re looking for some new options. While the sandwich version will always be in our top picks, we were pleased as a pig in sauce to try this out on pizza, tacos and fajitas. We drew the line at “in a brownie eaten out of a mason jar.” What’s your favorite?


This one topped our list as “biggest surprise.”  Grab the recipe in the slideshow above!
