Expert Tips

  • If you want, serve the sandwiches dip style with the liquid from slow cooking the pork.
  • I used a mix of spicy jalapeño peppers and sweet cherry peppers for this; use whatever ratio you like, depending on how much heat you prefer.
  • You could use pork shoulder (butt) in place of country-style pork ribs. Either will work beautifully for slow cooking.
