Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Martinez Cigars Customer Appreciation Party is on.  As always, Your Everyday Guy is on POINT!!!!!!

Let’s see a lot of people.  Need good food.  Drink Cigars.  What should I make?

AHA…..yes!!!!!!!!  Need to get to Fairway Market.  38 degrees a little breezy, grab my Liga Privada.. Flying Pig… Take a walk to Fairway.  60 blocks, just enough to finish the cigar (with my coffee in the thermos of course)





Pulled Pork Sandwiches

-       2 Pork Butts about 10lbs each.


  • Garlic (A lot)
  • 2 liters Black Currant Soda.
  • Kaffir Lime Leaves
  • 2 Apples
  • Serrano Peppers
  • Red Onion
  • Cilantro
  • Green Peppers
  • Dry Chiles (I Anjo)
  • Kosher Salt
  • Pepper
  • Herbs de Provence
  • Sugar
  • 1 Liter Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Juniper Berries
  • 2 Limes


-       Poke slots in the Butts.  Slide in garlic cloves (as much as you want). I did about 5 cloves each piece.

-       I use a deep Tupperware to marinate the meat.  Place the meat inside. Skin side up.  Cover (I mean cover) with Kosher Salt.  Now you can add Pepper and Garlic Powder to taste.  Next Herbs de Provence, Juniper Berries, Sugar.

-       After that everything else goes in. Be sure that you have enough liquid to cover the meat. I use water after the soda and vinegar.

-       The most important thing is that you place it in a cold spot (refrigerator). It is wintertime here. I am using the terrace.

-       I like to leave it in for at least 24 hours.  If longer, add Ice to keep the temperature down.  But it is 38 degrees cloudy going down to low 20s.  Better than my fridge that is packed (LOL)!!!!!!

-       NOTE- PREHEAT THE OVEN AT 225 15 minutes prior to cooking






-       Pull the pieces out of the marinade. In a pan, no oil needed.


-       Distribute all of the solid items from the marinade / brine into the pan.


-       DATS IT!!!!!!!!!!


-       I play it safe and add two cups of the marinade into the pan.  It helps to keep the butt moist until the fat starts to melt.


-       Remember this is going to take a while. I do one hour per pound.  10 lbs. = 10 hours.



  • Place in a separate pan.
  • Let simmer low and concentrate.
  • I add two cans of diced tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons of Hoisin and Oyster Sauce
  • Lemon Soda
  • Two table spoons of brown sugar.
  • Honey
  • Cumin
  • It is going to cook on low eat for at least two hours.  Stir constantly. Check for taste. Adjust to your liking.   When its done, strain and cool. Use it to coat the meat when it is done.
    • I use a blender some time to smooth out the sauce. Also does not hurt to add a little butter for texture.


-       TO SERVE:


-       Separate the skin from the meat. Pull it off. Should fall off the bone.


-       Grab some Bread.  I am using Challah Buns (lightly toasted)


-       Also have some coleslaw (yeah I made it)!
