Italian Seasoned
Pulled Pork Sandwiches



Pulled Pork Sandwiches are always a favorite around my house. The pork is seasoned with Italian herbs and spices and slow cooked until it’s tender and juicy.

After the pork is shredded I place it back in it’s own juice which is made with broth, red wine and aromatic vegetables. I always use garlic toasted buns or dinner rolls for any of my sandwiches.

Once the pork is placed on the bun just top it with the remaining vegetables or a little giardiniera and you’ll have the best Pulled Pork Sandwich you ever tasted.


  • 4 to 5 pound pork shoulder
  • 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of fresh ground black pepper
