Coast Cooking: A great roast pork sandwich

Here's another good food idea I got while visiting Oxford recently. 

Chef Corbin Evens made it for me when I stopped by his Oxford Canteen. It is killer good and not that hard to make, although roasting the pork may take some time. 

But time does not translate into hard, does it? Please do not judge a recipe by how long it takes. You do not have to be standing in the kitchen the entire time. 

The slaw is good enough to be eaten on almost any sandwich. Try it with fried shrimp or oysters.


Stud a pork shoulder with lots of garlic, season aggressively with black pepper, then roast, tented with tinfoil, at 325 f. for about 2 and half hours, internal temp should be 155 f. Allow to rest before pulling. 


4 cups shredded cabbage

1/3 cup sugar

2-3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1/2 cup cream

1 tablespoon mayonnaise

2 cloves minced garlic

The sandwich that can be made from these two recipes is pretty simple and is extremely good. Use good quality, locally baked bread, and then just pile it on.
