Classy Pork Sandwiches
Tender pork in a sweet sauce makes these stick-to-your-ribs sandwiches a tasty change from the same old sloppy joes. "My family can't get enough of the tangy barbecue recipe," confirms Sue Felton from Cascade, Iowa. "Plus, it's nice to make ahead of time for your busy occasions."
