Expert Tips

Give these shredded pork sandwiches a Southern twist by topping each serving with some of your favorite homemade creamy coleslaw or deli coleslaw.

The sweet-and-sour sauce adds a nice flavor to the pork, but if you don't have any, increase the barbecue sauce to 1 cup.

For a casual get-together, stretch the number of servings by making barbecue pork sliders. Use 12 mini buns with about 1/4 cup pork on each.
