How to make it

  • Sauce*
  • ***********************
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons peeled and chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 cups tomato purée
  • 3/4 cup dark molasses
  • 1/3 cup coarse-grain Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup bourbon
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco or other hot-pepper sauce
  • *****************************************************
  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Lightly coat a large baking pan with vegetable oil. Rub the pork shoulder with the pepper flakes, salt, pepper, and mustard seeds and place in the baking pan.
  • Pour the cider and vinegar over and around the pork. Scatter the onions, garlic, and bell pepper over and around the pork.
  • Cover with aluminum foil.
  • Roast for 3 hours.
  • Uncover and continue to roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the pork registers 180 degrees F about 1 hour.
  • While the pork is roasting, make the sauce:
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onions and ginger and sauté until soft, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the tomato purée, molasses, mustard, bourbon, vinegar, Worcestershire, lemon, salt, and pepper. Reduce the heat to very low and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, until very thick, about 2 hours.
  • Discard the lemon slices. Stir in the mint and Tabasco.
  • Remove the pork from the oven and transfer to a plate.
  • Let stand for 1 hour
  • . Reserve the roasted vegetables.
  • Using 2 forks, shred the pork by shred the pork by steadying the meat with 1 fork and pulling it away with the other, discarding any fat. Place the shredded pork in a bowl. With a slotted spoon, transfer the roasted vegetables to the bowl with the pork.
  • Mix the sauce with the shredded pork. Stuff each bun with some of the pork and serve immediately with the pickle spears on the side.
  • Makes 12 sandwiches
