Mustard Thyme Pulled Pork Sandwiches are an elegant twist on a summer favorite. Savory mustard thyme pork and spicy garlic pickles piled high on a toasted Brioche bun.
There are so many reasons to love your crockpot during the summer in Arizona. Namely because we are forever suffering with 100+ degree weather. We actually hit 112 this week. I know a gal who baked cookies on the dashboard of her car… seriously, it is that DARN HOT!
I have been craving Cuban sandwichs lately but am resisting the urge to make them. Really good oven-roasted pork takes forever to make and is worth every minute. Unless it is a billion degrees outside, then it makes you doubt your sanity. My compromise was to incorporate some of those flavors into an easy crockpot recipe.Delicious Mustard Thyme Pulled Pork Sandwiches #pork #foodie Click To Tweet
Pulled pork is such an easy recipe to make and you can really play around with flavor combos. Check out my Crockpot Pulled Pork, it is a great recipe to start with. Any leftovers are great in recipes like my Pulled Pork Ranch Bean Tostadas. Assuming you have leftovers.
Mustard is the star that makes these sandwiches shine. Lean pork loin is rubbed down with crushed garlic and three kinds of mustard then slow cooked with sweet onions and thyme until fall-apart tender. Pile it high on a toasted Brioche bun smeared with Dijon mustard and my homemade Spicy Garlic Quick Pickles. Perfect for late summer gatherings, game day parties and busy weeknights!
