Let’s have a party! One of the most popular uses of a slow-roasted pork shoulder is to make Pulled Pork Sandwiches. There is enough shredded tender pork here to make a dozen pulled pork sandwiches for a party.
We roasted a bone-in pork shoulder then shredded it up to make these pulled pork sandwiches. That tough, muscle-bound hunk of pork oven roasted, low and slow to fork-tender and delicious.
After shredding the warm tender pork shoulder we moistened the meat well with the smoke-flavored drippings.
We made these juicy, smoke-flavored pulled pork sandwiches with brioche hamburger buns. We slathered each side of the buns with our own fresh horseradish aioli sauce. You can get the recipe for the horseradish aioli sauce here.
We cheated a little and bought a bag of coleslaw mix to include in our sandwiches. This mix is a huge time saver without having to shred cabbage and carrots. A quick mix of mayo, sugar vinegar and seasoning and it is ready to go. Some little shortcuts just make life easier!
After slathering each side of the brioche buns we added a portion of slaw. Then we heaped on a generous portion of that shredded pork over the slaw and added the top portion of the bun. Yum! All that was needed was a fat dill pickle and salty, thick potato chips.

- 14 ounce bag of coleslaw mix
For the Pulled Pork Sandwiches:
- 5-7 pound Slow-Roasted Pork Shoulder-(Link)
- 1/2 to 1 cup of pork drippings
- 12 Brioche hamburger buns
- Fresh Horseradish Aioli
For the Coleslaw:

Assembling the Pulled Pork Sandwiches:
- Using two forks, shred the warm pork shoulder and moisten with the drippings.
- Slather each side of the Brioche buns with the horseradish sauce.
- Add a half-cup of the coleslaw to the bottom of the bun, then heap a generous portion of the shredded pork over the coleslaw.
- Add the top of the bun. Serve with tangy dill pickles and crunchy potato chips.
- A bag of coleslaw mix will usually include a package of dressing which can be used rather than mixing your own.
- The pork will shred easier while still warm
- Pour drippings over shredded pork. This will add flavor and keep the pork moist.
- Use just enough of the drippings to moisten the pork
- Regular hamburger buns, Ciabatta rolls, Focaccia buns or Ciabatta roll are options for the Brioche buns
- Toasting or grilling the buns will crisp them and prevent sogginess.
