Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Asian Slaw

After her first bite, my daughter claimed that this was her new favorite meal and requested that I make it at least once a week. I've been making barbecue pulled pork sandwiches for years, but the addition of this Asian Slaw just upped the ante. I have to admit that I'm not much of a cole slaw fan, I always skip right over it at potlucks, but this version had just the right amount of cool, crunchy tanginess (not sure if that is really a word) that mixed so perfectly with the warm spicy BBQ sauce. It was the perfect combination, and totally legit finger licking good!

For the pork:

1 (2lb) pork roast
1 12oz can coke
1 1/2 cups barbeque sauce
8 fresh bread rolls

Pour coke over pork in crock pot and cook on low for 6-7 hrs. Remove pork and pour out juice from crock pot. Shred the pork then return to the crock pot and mix in the bbq sauce. Keep warm until ready to serve.

For the slaw:

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 Tbs lemon juice
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp sesame oil
zest of 1 lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
3 cups chopped green cabbage, purple cabbage and carrots (optional)- or use a store bought packaged cole slaw mix

Mix ingredients together and refrigerate for an hour.  When ready to serve, broil buns in oven for 2 minutes then spoon on shredded pork and top with slaw.
