I wanted to make pulled pork sandwiches because they are a family favorite and an easy meal. We only eat them when I have spare pork loin because it takes a lot of time to make juicy pulled pork to go in those buns.
I’ve been trying to make the perfect marinade for pulled pork for a while and I finally got it right this time. I’ve always made it too sweet. I was looking for a sweet, but smokey sauce to simmer my pulled pork in. After many, many, many tries – I’ve finally created the PERFECT pulled pork marinade. Sweet, but smokey.
I adjusted my recipe to incorporate liquid smoke. I also added apple cider vinegar and honey for sweetness. After mixing all three ingredients in a pan, I added the pork to infuse the flavor. It had everything I was looking for!
I have made pulled pork sliders before, but this time, my husband loved it! I was so excited to get good marks from him.
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup of liquid smoke
1 tbs garlic powder
1 tbs onion powder
1/2 cup of honey
1 lb pulled pork
1 tbs apple cider vinegar
1 cup of beef broth
1. Add pulled pork and broth in a pan and stir for 5-10 minutes until warmed through. Add more or less depending on how much pork loin you have. The pork loin should soak up the broth and make it juicy.
2. Whisk together Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, apple cider vinegar, honey, garlic powder and onion powder in the same pan as the pulled pork loin and simmer until flavors are combined.
3. Add marinated pork loins to buns.
4. Add optional toppings (lettuce, slaw, pickles etc.) to buns and enjoy!
