Summer pulled-pork sandwich party menu

Dig out your slow cooker for a midsummer's pulled pork feast — with all the fixins!

Pulled pork with ginger-bourbon sauce

Take advantage of the summer weather, and throw a weekend fete. But put away the burgers and hotdogs; the starring role of this meal is a saucy, pulled pork sandwich!

Our slow-cooked pulled pork with ginger-bourbon sauce is finger-licking good and you can even make it in advance.

Pair your sandwiches with these traditional fixings:

Coleslaw can be served either on the side or in the sandwich. Use our classic sweet ‘n’ sour coleslaw, or for a twist, try our Asian-inspired kimchee slaw.

A classic potato salad is a must-have with any outdoor summer meal. Either our baby-red-potato salad or our potato salad with parsley vinaigrette will work well in this menu.







Gourmet corn with herb butter


Grill up some corn to accompany your pork, and set out different toppings for your guests to choose from.

Try herbs with our gourrmet corn with herb butter recipe, or if you like a some extra heat, try our recipe for corn on the cob with lime and spice.
