"The most important part of this recipe is cooking the pork just right and shredding it by hand. I love pork sandwiches and they are perfect just after a surf; quick and easy with a lot of flavor.
Because the pork needs to marinate for at least 12 hours, you need to plan ahead. You can cook the pork ahead of time, and then warm it up when you are ready to make the sandwiches".
