Sandwich Filling

  • 1/4 cup shredded cabbage
  • 1/4 cup julienned carrots
  • 1/4 cup julienned red bell peppers, 1-inch length

  3. Place cut side of bun down in pan and toast for 1 minute – or toast cut side in broiler. Transfer to work surface cut side up.
  4. Add oil and pulled pork, cook for one minute until pork becomes golden brown on the edges, (do not stir for about a minute.) Add garlic and ginger, stir-fry until aromatic – about 15 seconds.
