This meal began from the necessity of producing some pulled pork for a special recipe I’ll be posting tomorrow. In the process of making it, I felt it was too effortless and delicious not to pass along! Plus who does not want a flavorful crock pot recipe that provides ease of meal preparation but does not bring the 1970’s back to the kitchen? Me, for one.
I baked gluten-free hamburger buns for our sandwiches but Kaiser rolls make a perfect match for this luscious pulled pork too.
I hesitate to even call this a recipe feeling that is too sophisticated a term for what it is! ‘Delicious’ is what it is so maybe it does not matter how simple it is to assemble. I used cabbage and carrots from my winter CSA. I also love adding purple cabbage with the green for both flavor and color but did not have any on hand. You can make this even faster if you wish to purchase a bag of cole slaw greens as your base.
Lazy Girl’s Cole Slaw
- ½ head green cabbage or mix of green and purple, grated to make 4 cups
- 6 medium carrots grated
- 1 bottle Brianna’s Poppy Seed Dressing
- Use the grater disk of a food processor to grate the cabbage and carrots. Transfer cabbage and carrots to a bowl.
- Add Brianna’s Poppy Seed Dressing to desired taste and coating thoroughness. I used about 1/3 bottle for this recipe. NOTE: I like it to be coated but not soggy or weighty on the vegetables.
Hubby saw this and drooled. Guess what we're having for dinner tonight? 😀

We made cole slaw last night, too. It is always so refreshing. The pulled pork sounds like the perfect combo.

I've bought that Brianna's poppyseed dressing and it's good! Never thought to use it on cole slaw. Those pork sandwiches made me instantly hungry.
I am the most meat-ignorant person out there. Here's what I know about pork: (1) boston butt for kalua pork, (2) country style ribs (boneless) for the carnitas salad from Spilled Milk (first or second podcast), and (3) it's all good in sausage.
Now I can add #4, shoulder for pulled pork. Thanks and cheers!
