Readers Write: Pulled Pork Cheesesteak in Action Eick June 24, 2008 Sandwiches 6 Comments My post suggesting that someone create a pulled pork cheese steak has led to a flood of e-mails and nearly 100 votes in my poll about it (as of today, 69% say the idea is “genius” and want to try one “now). One such e-mail I received about it was from a regular reader of mine, who actually got the chance to try and make one of these this weekend. Here’s a few excerpts from what he shared with me about making the sandwich: I actually got to try this out yesterday. Here’s what I did: I took a 9 lb pork shoulder, coated it with sea salt, fresh cracked black pepper, and olive oil, then cut four slits in it with a paring knife and stuffed each slit with a garlic clove. Fired up the grill and threw a peat briquette on it gives a really good smoky, earthy flavor. Slow smoked it for a little under three hours. Julienned some red and green peppers, onions, coated them with olive oil, salt and pepper, and threw them on the grill. Made a compound garlic butter spread in my mixer, brushed it inside some hoagie rolls and toasted them on the grill. Lined them with some applewood smoked cheddar, onions on one side, peppers on the other (to melt the cheese), pulled that pig apart, stuffed it, and topped it again with a hickory flavored bbq sauce. 15.5 hours later and I’m still not hungry. Hope this made you hungry. Thanks again for the idea! Yum, sounds awesome. Thanks for e-mailing me! I’m going to attempt to make one of these at a BBQ I’m going to this weekend. I can’t guarantee pictures, because I never remember to take them, but I’ll let people know how it turns out.
