Italian style BBQ pulled pork sandwich with melted mozzarella on Charred garlic wheat bread



This recipe I created by cooking of a pork loin, marinated for 12 hrs in
white wine,7 garlic cloves, lemon zest, thyme,fennel seed,rosemary,cherry tomatoes, and 2 chopped up habanero peppers. Cooked low at 300 for the fist 2 hrs and then at 375 for the last hr to 1 1/2 hrs depending on your ovens own temp. Super right?? I will post the entire recipe for the pork loin later on. This was super juicy and I had a hard time cutting into slices because the meat just totally fell apart upon cutting. SOO good..

1 pork loin cooked off and cooled and shredded
1 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup ketchup
2 garlic cloves grated
1 small onion grated or chopped into small pieces
1 loaf crusty Italian wheat bread
1 1/2 cups mozzarella
3 tablespoons hot sauce
3 drizzles olive oil
Salt and pepper
Sea salt for toast

Once your pork has cooled, cut loin in half and with 2 forks start pulling apart and shredding your pork.

BBQ Sauce and Pork:

In a med sauce pan heat on med high. Add a few drizzle of olive oil, your garlic and onion. SautΓ©e till onions become translucent about 3 to 4 mins. Next, whisk in Tomato sauce,ketchup, balsamic, hot sauce and a dash of salt and pepper. Bring to a slow boil about 5 mins. Whisk till mixture becomes thick and turn heat to low. Add your shredded pork, combine.
Place on low heat till your toast is finished and you’re ready to assemble your sandwiches.

Charred Garlic toast:

Preheat your oven to broil
Cut a loaf of crusty wheat bread or using any type of crusty textured bread you prefer. Cut into about 1 inch slices. Grab a oven rack. Drizzle some olive oil on all sides of the bread and sprinkle on some garlic powder and a little sea salt and pepper. Broil for about 2 mins just till bread is charred around the edges. Remove pieces and add about a 1/2 of your BBQ pulled pork to one side of your bread and sprinkle on some shredded mozz right on top. Place each Sammie on a cookie sheet with the tops off into a 350 degree oven for 5 mins till cheese melts on top. Once cheese melts, remove from the oven, place tops of sandwiches and serve.

Cooking time: approx 15 mins

Serves 6 to 8 peeps
