For the last couple of weeks here, there's been an ad running on television from a place called "Firehouse Subs" where they are promoting their new "hot sandwich" that is essentially pulled pork piled on a sandwich bun and topped with a slice of pepper jack cheese and then a mound of coleslaw. For whatever reason, that particular sandwich caught my eye and I've been thinking about recreating it ever since I first saw the ad.
A couple of days ago, I made my Slow Cooker Boneless Beef Chuck Short Ribs for dinner. We had plenty of leftovers that I usually like to shred and make sandwiches with. Today, I had one of those "light bulb" moments. I realized that my "dream sandwich" was now very easily within my grasp! LOL
I decided to use the leftover beef to recreate that sandwich instead of using pulled pork. I simply shredded the leftover beef ribs and placed them in a saucepan with about 1/4 cup of the juices they were cooked in. I added a couple squirts of "no HFCS" ketchup (about 2 tablespoons) and a few dashes of ground chipotle pepper and let it simmer to cook out most of the juices, but leave enough to keep it moist and concentrate the flavors.
I baked a fresh batch of my grain-free Sesame Seed Sandwich Buns and a batch of my Easy Coleslaw after I got home. To make the sandwiches, I split my sandwich buns in half and piled them high with pulled beef, then topped it with a slice of pepper jack cheese and a big spoonful of coleslaw...and "Voila" I was in "dream sandwich heaven!" I thoroughly enjoyed my own version of Pulled Beef & Slaw Sandwich...and no Firehouse Subs was required! Before I show you MY sandwich...here's a link that will take you to the sandwich that caught my eye with their ads. Here's the link to their sandwich: Firehouse Subs "King Hawaiian Pulled Pork & Slaw Sandwich"
Now, check out MY version below...it's pulled beef piled high on a grain-free Sesame Seed Sandwich Bun topped with pepper jack cheese and my Easy Coleslaw. This is heaven on a bun! Enjoy!
