Today a wonderful sandwich. We can use loin or tenderloin pork. Pork and barbecue sauce. The perfect combination. Let’s cook.


1 pound pork loin or pork sirloin
Some salt and freshly ground black pepper
Some extra virgin olive oil
Some barbecue sauce

First, you will have to prepare the meat. Put some salt and pepper to it and if the meat is too big, you can cut it in two pieces. This time, I cooked the meat in a pressure cooker. But first put a couple of teaspoons of olive oil in the cooker and heat it. Put the pork inside and sear the meat for about 5 minutes. Then cover the meat with water and close the pressure cooker. Follow the instructions of your pressure cooker. What I do is setting the fire to high first and when the cooker starts to release steam, I set it to low and then I start counting the time. In this case, we should have the meat in the cooker for about half an hour, counting from the moment it starts to release steam. After that, turn the cooker off and let it cool before you open it.
Next, when it is safe to handle the pork, shred it finely. Once it is shredded, put the meat in a not too hot pan and add the barbecue sauce little by little. The fire must be low. Keep on stirring so that all the meat gets the sauce and add more sauce if necessary till you get the results you want. You do not want to add too much sauce, believe me. If you think that it is too dry, you can add a bit of the liquid from the pressure cooker. Have the meal in the pan for about five minutes.
You only have to make the sandwiches with your favourite bread. You will really love this sandwich. You can cook the pork in a slow cooker too. The results are amazing. Enjoy!
