Pulled pork is the perfect Sunday comfort food. This recipe is my husband’s and I love that he adds fresh cilantro. You can use any fresh herbs you have on-hand. The pork absorbs the flavors as it slow cooks throughout the day. Your home will smell amazing and your mouth will water while you anxiously wait to dive-in.
Any good pulled pork sandwich is typically served on a fresh potato bun. I will not lie, it’s my favorite. But, I also don’t like to eat a ton of processed white bread so I swap out my bun for a romaine lettuce leaf. Bibb lettuce is another hearty lettuce leaf you can use or try rolling it up as collard green wrap.
I am a huge fan of pickled red onions on any pork dish but recently I discovered pickled cucumbers. Oh my, it’s so good. I have to admit, I was completely intimated to make pickled anything…it sounds so time consuming. But, much to my surprise, it is super simple and takes hardly any time at all!
