Melted Pork Sammiches
You might recall the meltingly tender pork roast recipe that we shared with you earlier in the month. Well, in addition to serving as a delicious dinner that first night, the pork also turned out to make some great leftovers. And this sammich is one of the best of the best.
The inspiration began when we found these delicious looking pretzel rolls at the supermarket bakery.
We bought up a couple of them, brought them home, and started cooking up our sammich concept. The first step was to chop and saute a bit of onion.
And why not get some good caramelization in while we're at it?
We shredded up a bit of the leftover pork...
... sliced up one of the rolls and spruced it up a bit with some of those delicious melted apples and onions.
At that point, we added the pulled pork, a nice handful of the caramelized onions, and a few slices of aged swiss cheese.
And we put the sammich right under the broil to melt the cheese and brown everything up a bit.
The results were beyond fantastic. In fact, this was the perfect sort of sandwich for pairing with a nice pumpkin ale on a cold, snowy evening.
My advice? Make up some of that pork roast and try it for yourself!
