A Note from Feedfeed

Tender pork is generously seasoned with a blend of spices, then slow-cooked in a flavorful mixture of apple cider vinegar, garlic, brown sugar, and more. Shred the meat, pile it high on buns, and savor the combination of tangy, smoky flavors with a touch of heat from the red chili flakes.


Prep time 1hr 30mins
Cook time 4hrs
Serves or Makes: 8-10


  • 5-8 lb bone-in pork butt
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons freshly cracked black pepper  
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons mustard seed
  • 4 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 4 cups water
  • 5 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/ 3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/ 4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/ 4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons whole grain Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • Hamburger buns (or gluten-free buns)


  • Step 1

    Combine rub ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Rub all over pork butt. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour and as long as overnight.

  • Step 2

    Preheat oven to 500℉. Unwrap pork and place in a roasting pan with sides about 2 inches high. Cook for 45 minutes until dark browned and even blackened in some spots. Remove from oven.

  • Step 3

    Lower oven to 325℉. Pour 4 cups of apple cider vinegar over the top and add chopped garlic around the pork. Cover tightly twice with aluminum foil. Poke about a dozen holes all over the top of the foil. Cook pork butt 3 hours longer until so tender that it just falls away from the center bone.

  • Step 4

    Place the meat on a plate and pour the pan juice into a large saucepan.

  • Step 5

    To the pan juices add the white vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, dark brown sugar, dijon mustard, 3 tbsps of apple cider vinegar, and chili flakes.

  • Step 6

    Bring to a simmer until reduced by half and thick, about 20 minutes.

  • Step 7

    While the sauce is boiling down, pull apart the pork with 2 forks. Pour the sauce over the pulled pork and work through until fully absorbed.

  • Step 8

    Make sure to top sandwiches with a fine coleslaw and a little extra sauce!
