These easy BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches are served with a tangy, crunchy pineapple slaw and are perfect for any occasion from parties and potlucks to casual family dinner. A BBQ pulled pork sandwich with slaw, in a bun, served on a plate.

I use my go-to slow cooker BBQ pulled pork recipe for these sandwiches, but you can also cook the pork in the oven or instant pot. (If you’re in a big hurry you could even use Costco’s Smoked Pulled Pork, with is fantastic!).

The BBQ sauce used to coat the meat is just as important as the meat itself! I’ll usually use homemade BBQ sauce, or Sweet Baby Rays, for convenience. I think the slaw adds a necessary crunchy and flavor that makes the sandwiches stand out, but you could leave it off if you want.

How to make BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches:

  • Season and cook pork in oven, slow cooker or instant pot. Shred meat and add BBQ sauce, stirring to coat.

  • While pork cooks, make the slaw by combining all of the slaw ingredients in one bowl, and the dressing ingredients in another. Pour dressing over the slaw and toss well to combine. Refrigerate for at least an hour, or until ready to serve.

  • Serve BBQ pulled pork on buns, topped with slaw, if desired.

Storing and Freezing Instructions:

Store leftover BBQ pulled pork in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days, or freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator. To reheat, add a little water and additional BBQ sauce to moisten the meat. Cover and reheat in microwave, slow cooker, or 250 degree oven until warm (165 degrees).

  1. I love this recipe. The slow cooker pulled pork is my fo to now for all pulled pork recipes! It’s in my slow cooker right now doe a church function tomorrow.

    1. I tend to buy a 12 or 16 ounce bag, depending on the store i’m shopping at! Feel free to use your own judgement as to the ratio of other ingredients (bell pepper, pineapple, mango, etc) to slaw for this recipe!

  2. 5 stars
    The flavor of these is so amazing. The mango slaw adds the perfect fruity bite to the sandwich.

    1. Hi Tara, I’m so sorry, my site is having technical problems with the recipe card when viewed on a desktop or tablet device. You will be able to see the recipe if you pull it up on your mobile phone. I’m trying to resolve the problem ASAP. Sorry for the inconvenience!

  3. We LOVE pulled pork sandwiches with coleslaw on top! I will have to try this version, minus the pineapple – the hubs is allergic. Boo!

  4. This slaw sounds amazing. I love varied slaw recipes and I never thought to put mango in it. What a good flavor combination. I have to make some of this. Thanks for sharing.

    Wishes for tasty dishes,
