This BBQ Pulled Pork meal includes a bonus recipe for a delicious red cabbage salad! I’ve always been a huge fan of red cabbage salad. I love vinegary dishes and this one fit the bill. The pulled pork sandwiches topped with the red cabbage salad made a perfect BBQ and spiced vinegar flavor combination.
For those crazy people who are not a fan of red cabbage salad, you can definitely skip that part of the recipe and top your pulled pork with other “crunchy” items such as pickles or lettuce. I also heard coleslaw was a common side to serve on pulled pork, but I personally couldn’t picture mayo combining well with BBQ. Maybe I’m the crazy one, who knows!
Honestly though, the way this pulled pork is cooked in the crockpot, all the juices of the pork mix with the spices, onions, and BBQ sauce to create a savory flavor so good you may not even need to top it with anything! The process of cooking the pork slowly gives it a chance to marinade for hours allowing it to develop an amazing flavor. It also yields pork that’s so tender it will shred easily using only a fork. Serve on a large burger bun and dig in!
