Memorial Day Pulled Pork with Apple Coleslaw and Apple BBQ Sauce

I recently had the incredible opportunity to become a featured blogger for King’s Hawaiian.  My first post (“Memorial Day Pulled Pork with Apple Coleslaw and Apple BBQ Sauce“) hit their site this past Friday and as of today (Memorial Day) it’s being featured on their home page!!!  I felt honored that they even asked me to blog for them, let alone feature my recipe on their home page.  Needless to say, I am AMPING!  OK…enough of that…let’s get to the food!

This recipe is fairly straightforward.  The only thing that kinda drags this recipe out is the time it takes to Julianne the apples.  If you have a food processor that does that, count yourself lucky 🙂  Also…I cheat and buy the pre-made coleslaw mix. You can make your own mix….but that will also drag things out.  And really…the pre-made tastes perfectly fine, so why waste the time?  One last thing, I got the apple coleslaw recipe from my buddy Chris who has an kick-butt BBQ channel on YouTube called “Mother’s BBQ“.  Definitely go check his channel out and subscribe.  He’s got tons of epic recipes and I really like his laid-back style.

Apple Coleslaw

1 package of coleslaw mix
4 or 5 apples (I used Fuji apples)
1 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tsp poppy seeds
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Julianne your apples then mix all ingredients together and sit in the fridge until it’s time to top the pulled pork sandwiches.  One thing to keep in mind here is that since Julianning the apples takes quite a while, they tend to turn brown pretty quick, so I just toss them in a bit of lemon juice to keep them from turning brown.

Apple BBQ Sauce

1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce (I would recommend using an “Original” flavor as your base because the idea here is to really taste the apple flavors.)
1 cup apple jelly
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

Whisk all ingredients together and sit in the fridge until it’s time to drizzle on top of your pulled pork sandwich.

And finally…pile up some freshly pulled pork and top with the apple coleslaw and apple BBQ sauce, preferably using the King’s Hawaiian Original Hawaiian Sweet Sandwich Buns.  You’re probably thinking I’m being biased here….but I can honestly tell you the sweetness of the King’s Hawaiian sandwich bun made this one of the best (if not the best) pulled pork sandwich I’ve ever had.  Try this recipe out and let me know what you think!!!  Happy Memorial Day!!!!
