PULLED PORK PO’BOY SANDWICHES — The traditional po’boy sandwich gets a twist with slow cooked, shredded pork instead of shrimp. Served with a spicy Cajun-style remoulade sauce, these sandwiches are sure to please!
If you are a fan of the traditional shrimp po’boy, then you are going to absolutely love these Pulled Pork Po’Boy Sandwiches!
Honestly, I don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner. I absolutely love po’boys, and it only makes sense that they’d be delicious with different kinds of fillings.
It’s really the spicy remoulade sauce that I love the most. You could put that stuff on pretty much any sandwich (except many peanut butter and jelly–but who knows?) and turn it into something spectacular.
I’ve included instructions in the recipe for making your own pulled pork, but it goes without saying that these sandwiches are a fantastic way to use up leftover pulled pork.
To really make things easy, you could even pick up some pulled pork from your favorite barbecue joint. Definitely a time saver on those busy nights when you don’t have time to cook.
Once you’ve got your pulled pork, these sandwiches come together in no time. The sauce comes together easily in your blender, then you pile it all into toasted sub buns with lettuce and tomato and you’re good to go.
I usually serve these sandwiches with potato chips, but French fries are great too. I confess, I just want something that I can dip in the extra remoulade sauce.
Not only are these sandwiches a great week night meal, they’re perfect for game day, and even tailgating.
My family couldn’t stop raving about them. I hope you love these pulled pork sandwiches as much as we do!
