Mississippi Pork Sandwiches #slowcooker

Jump to Recipe

Typically, when you think of pulled pork sandwiches you go straight for bbq pulled pork. But does that always have to be the case? I am saying a resounding NOPE! I have been seeing lots of recipes for a Mississippi Pot Roast made in the slow cooker, and decided to put my own spin on it. Mississippi Pork Sandwiches have a lot of same flavors without the beef and without the packets!

The main flavors of ranch powder are chives, dill and garlic. So by using these seasonings, you achieve a very similar taste. Then using the beef broth and Worcestershire you get the same taste as the brown gravy packet that most Mississippi pot roast recipes call for. In general, I stay away from pre mixed seasoning packets, as they tend to have excessive amounts of salt and other preservatives to keep them from clumping. Whenever possible, I try to make my own. The slow cooker brings all the flavors together to give you a delicious, tangy, pork sandwich that everyone will want more of.

I served these sandwiches with Black Bean Salad. It’s similar to what many call “Cowboy Caviar”, however it does not have jalapenos (so no heat). It is a wonderful light and bright summer salad that goes very well with all sorts of different dishes. It also makes a great lunch (especially if you are meal prepper!)
