Reviews for Pork BBQ Sandwiches
"I just made this for a dinner party, Everyone loved it. This was a wonderful recipe and the sandwiches turned out so good. I am definitely using this recipe again."
"5 stars, without a DOUBT! This was so easy to make and the results were INCREDIBLE! Yummy on crusty kaiser rolls with some of the au jus poured on top. With the leftovers, one night, I made some garlic bread with mozzarella and the kids made sandwiches "with a twist"...the garlic and cheese were a nice change up for leftovers. You've GOTTA try this!"
"I recently made this recipe for family and everyone absolutely loved it. Could almost double the onions!"
"Best pulled pork I have ever had. Don't skip the caramelized onions as a topper. The onions make it! This recipe will not disappoint anyone with a taste bud in their mouth!!"
