Mini Pulled Pork Sandwiches with homemade slaw


With the weather expected  to go over 30 degrees Celsius in some parts of the UK I thought I would a share an easy recipe for mini pulled pork sandwiches that would solve your upcoming ‘bring a plate’ barbecue conundrum.

Luckily supermarkets have caught onto the pulled pork trend and are selling pre-slow cooked pulled pork, so the original 5 hour cooking time has been taken out of the equation! All you are expected to make is home-made apple and red cabbage slaw.


1 pre-cooked pulled pork

1/2 shredded Red Cabbage

2 tablespoons of Greek yoghurt

1 tablespoon of mayonnaise

1 shredded green apple

1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Salt and pepper

6 hamburger buns


1. Cook the pork as per the instructions from your chosen supermarket brand

2. Shred the apple and the red cabbage together in a food processor before adding the mayonnaise, yoghurt and vinegar (If you don’t own a food processor you must cut the cabbage and apple into long, thin, even slices)

3. Stir all the ingredients together, season with salt and pepper, and then refrigerate until the slaw is needed. * I know some people like thick creamy slaw and others not so much, so as long as you stick to the ratio of 2:1 of Greek yoghurt to mayonnaise you can create a slaw to your personal taste.

4. To make the miniature buns use either a round cookie cutter or a water glass to press through a large hamburger bun. If it is not cutting through the bread use a sharp knife to cut around the edges

5. Toast these miniature hamburger buns in the oven or barbecue until golden before adding your condiments- I personally love huge amounts of barbecue and mustard

6. When the pulled pork is cooked, shred the meat with two forks and  then assemble  it onto your hamburger buns before adding the slaw

NOTE: If you want to get fancy add half a slice of cheese  on top of the meat and let it melt either on the barbecue or grill but please do not heat the slaw.

    If you want to cook your own Pork how do you make it really soft and pully?

      It requires hours of cooking the meat in flavoured juices on a very low heat- ideally if you own a slow cooker this is the best appliance for the task! xox C

        And I bet you have a fantastic recipe to make your own little rolls? I think you did bread making at Bally Maloe?

          I did learn how to make bread rolls but it is definitely not for the faint hearted or impatient! xox C
