Raspberry-Chipotle Pulled Pork Sandwiches (http://www.patiodaddiobbq.com/2012/02/raspberry-chipotle-pulled-pork.html)

I recently posted my recipe (http://www.patiodaddiobbq.com/2012/02/hot-fast-memphis-style-pulled-pork.html) for Memphis-inspired pulled pork. Well now it's
time to share how I put some of that pork to work.


Pulled pork is traditionally served on a CWB (cheap white bun) with a
drizzle or two of sauce, and coleslaw. That's it! It's simple, easy and
run-down-your-arm delicious.

I'm generally all about tradition, but sometimes it's good to color outside
the lines a bit, so here I've added some fruitiness to the party. The
combination of moist smokey pork, a fantastic raspberry-chipotle sauce (http://www.jelly.com/product.php?prod=FWG000036),
and slaw kicked up with pineapple truly elevate the sandwich.

8 large Plain hamburger buns
4 cups Pulled pork (here's (http://www.patiodaddiobbq.com/2009/07/cheater-pulled-pork.html) a cheater version)
1 cup Fischer & Wieser Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce® (http://www.jelly.com/product.php?prod=FWG000036)
2 cups Pineapple slaw (recipe follows)

Pineapple Slaw (a take on my Killer Slaw (http://www.patiodaddiobbq.com/2010/08/killer-slaw.html))
1 bag (16 oz) Tri-color slaw
1/2 cup Pineapple, crushed and drained
1/3 cup Buttermilk
1/4 cup Sugar
3 Tbsp Mayonnaise
1 Tbsp Canola oil
1 tsp Apple cider vinegar
1 tsp Garlic salt
1/2 tsp Celery salt
1/2 tsp Black pepper, ground fresh
1/8 tsp Maggi Seasoning (http://www.amazon.com/Maggi-Seasoning/dp/B0000E2PX6)
2 tsp Lemon juice, squeezed fresh

Note: If you can't find Maggi Seasoning, just use a dash each of
Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce.

Combine all of the slaw ingredients, except the slaw mix, in a large mixing
bowl and whisk until all of the dressing ingredients are smooth and

Add the slaw and fold it in so that it's evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate
2-4 hours, stirring occasionally.

Warm the sauce and buns.


Top each bun with 1/2 cup of pork (hot, of course), 2 tablespoons of
sauce, and 1/4 cup of slaw (drained of excess juice).

Tip: I press the slaw in a pasta fork to remove the juice.


Serve and enjoy!

FYI - The sauce is available at Wal-Mart.

Looks really good PD. Chipotle goes well with sweet.

I take a couple small cans of chipotle in adobo and blend it with a block of guava paste. You would think that block of guava paste would be overwhelming but it's not. In fact you get just a hint of sweetness through the heat of the chipotle but it cuts the heat just a tad and the guava is very muted in flavor. It's a great combination and hold well in the fridge for a very long time.

This looks very good. I was poking around yesterday for just such a recipe for a wing glaze.

Looks great!

I've tried the Raspberry Chipotle sauce before and liked it a lot. It's a nice change from the ordinary every now and then.
I will give the slaw recipe a try this weekend since I'm cooking a butt.
I've never heard of the Maggi Seasoning before nor have I ever seen it in stores. I guess I will have to do the Worcestershire and Soy mix.

John, your food always makes me hungry and I didn't eat breakfast this morning, so it's even worse today!

Is that ranchero beans with it? Perfect meal!

made from scratch is always good but I like recipes like that are delicious and easy to prepare. when you have great pulled pork to start with, why not. just talking about the sauce here. that pineapple slaw sounds great too.
