Braised pork shoulder sandwich
Braised pork shoulder sandwich is a famous sandwich in the Southern part of the United States, which has lately become popular in Chicago as well. This sandwich is made from bread (Italian bread or a hamburger bun are most often used varieties), braised pork meat, and a variation of vegetables, such as onions, peppers and cabbage. Most of the time these vegetables are pickled or slightly cooked. When ready, the vegetables are mixed with different spices, thus conferring the dish a special aroma. The secret of this dish lies in the method of cooking the meat. For the preparation of Braised pork shoulder sandwich, the cooks use the pork shoulder, which they braise. Braising is a combination cooking method which uses both, moist and dry heat. Typically the food is first seared at a high temperature and then finished in a covered pot with a variable amount of liquid, resulting in a particular flavor. Braising the meat is often referred to as pot roasting. Though assembling the sandwich together usually takes only a few minutes, braising the meat might take a while. This sandwich is great to be served with barbecue sauce or mustard.
