The Best Barbecue Pork Sandwich I Ever Ate!
Last evening, we enjoyed barbecue pork sandwiches that were unrivaled by any either of us had previously enjoyed! I simmered thick pork loin chops for two hours in 1/3 Chardonnay and 2/3 spring water. The loin chops had previously been seasoned with Pappy's, ground black pepper, and granulated garlic and had been pan-seared. After simmering, the loin chops shredded nicely, and I added 2/3 of a bottle of Stubb's Spicy Bar-B-Q Sauce. I added a tablespoon of Crystal Pure Louisiana Extra-hot Sauce and stirred. When Laura arrived, she took over the tending of the pork. After another hour of simmering in the sauce, the pork was ready for the table! We slathered the pork onto Oroweat Onion buns. Laura and I agreed that we had never enjoyed superior barbecue pork sandwiches! I highly recommend Stubb's Spicy Bar-B-Q Sauce!
