My own version of food truck fare

Not the usual food beauty shot because this lunch is traveling. This week our mechanics at Christian Auto had a time with the transmission in our Honda Hybrid. Because they were not satisfied until it was perfect, I'm taking them lunch today.

What's on the menu?
Pulled pork sandwiches with coleslaw and chocolate brownies.

The pork butt was rubbed with salt, pepper, cumin, and chili pepper and roasted slow in a 275 degree oven for over six hours until it was tender enough to shred with a fork. I added some of the drippings and BBQ sauce.

The coleslaw couldn't be easier. Chopped cabbage, green and red along with shredded carrots. I did not put onion but sometimes I do. Dressing:

1/2 cup + heaping Tablespoon of Mayo
1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
3 Tablespoons sugar

Combine sugar and vinegar, stir to dissolve. Beat in the mayo. Pour over cabbage and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. I like to let it set over night.

Just wanted them to know how much we like their work. Thanks Jonathon and Shawn.

Your recipes sound and look delicious. It seems like traveling in your vehicle is as fun as a party, and you don't even have to pay for the fare. HAHA!
