Delicious leftovers: Pulled pork burgers with coleslaw

So you made the pulled pork tacos and have some pork left… don’t fear, don’t waste!  You can whip together these delicious babies in no time.  The great thing about burgers is they can be stuffed with almost anything, and the key things can usually be found in the fridge/cupboard: bread (or rolls or wraps), mayo, mustard, ketchup, pickles, onion, cheese, some type of vegetable…  I used coleslaw in mine (mainly because I had to use up a cabbage… but also because it is a delicious combination). Lettuce or any other greens would also work.  Reheat that pork and enjoy!

Pulled pork burgers with coleslaw

Ingredients
Pulled pork recipe (I had about 2C left)
BBQ sauce (about 1/4C for 2C pork, or to taste)
1/2 cabbage
2 carrots
1/2 red onion
3-4TB mayonnaise
1-2TB mustard (optional)
1/4 lemon (juiced)
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 bunch coriander
bread rolls
cheese of choice (I used raclette)

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 220C fan-forced. For the coleslaw, mix together shredded cabbage, grated carrots, chopped coriander and chopped red onion. Add lemon juice, 1/2TB mustard (optional), mayonnaise, salt and pepper. This is so much better served cold so try to make it ahead so you can pop it in the fridge.
2. Reheat the pulled pork in a saucepan on low and once warm, mix in bbq sauce (to taste).
3. Toast your bread rolls in the oven. Smear with mayonnaise and/or mustard (as desired). Place pulled pork on bottom roll and top with cheese. Grill in oven until cheese is melted. Top with coleslaw and close the burger. Eat.
