Ingredients
For the sandwiches:
  • ½ cup apple cider
  • 1 cup gluten-free barbecue sauce divided
  • 2 garlic cloves peeled and quartered
  • 1 red onion peeled and sliced into ¼-inch slices
  • 1 3-pound pork shoulder/butt
  • 1 loaf gluten-free bread
For the slaw:
  • 4 cups red cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 dashes hot pepper sauce
  • ½ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. Pour apple cider and ½ cup barbecue sauce into a 5- or 6-quart slow cooker and stir until combined. Add garlic, onion, and pork. Cook on low until meat is very tender and shreds easily with a fork, about 7-8 hours.
  2. While the meat is cooking, combine all slaw ingredients in a large bowl and mix. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes, but preferably 3-4 hours.
  3. Once the meat is done, shred with two forks and add remaining ½ cup barbecue sauce. Toast bread slices. Place meat on top of one slice of bread, add slaw, top with remaining bread slice, and serve.
Recipe Notes

Reserve at least 1 cup of pulled pork for meal 2. The slaw is also still good the following day.
