15 Best Pork Sandwiches

Forget about your boring old ham and cheese, lunch is all about pork sandwiches!

From pulled pork, and roasted pork, to pork tenderloin, there’s so much to love.

It’s especially great when you cook the pork low and slow for that melt-in-your-mouth tenderness.

How about a Cuban sandwich, with roasted pork, ham, and Swiss cheese, all pressed to perfection? 

Or maybe a Vietnamese pork banh mi, with its savory marinated pork and tangy pickled vegetables? The options are virtually endless!

1.  Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Ready for a crazy-good recipe? This Dr. Pepper pulled pork is mouthwateringly delicious!

It’s not just tender and juicy, but also bursting with unique flavor.

Soda-cooked meat isn’t new, but Dr. Pepper adds fruity, spiced twists perfect for BBQ sauce.

Plus, it’s a slow cooker, hands-off feast!

Hot Tip: For pulled pork, choose pork shoulder. It’s marbled and super juicy.

Pork loin doesn’t soften as nicely, missing that melt-in-your-mouth texture.

2. Roasted Pork Sandwich

This is one irresistible sandwich.

It’s loaded with slow-roasted pork loin, caramelized onions, and melted Provolone cheese. 

That’s all nestled in a crusty roll and slathered with homemade honey mustard. 

The ideal pork cut depends on the type of sandwich you’re craving. For shredded pork sandwiches, go for a pork shoulder.

However, for a succulent roasted pork sandwich, a leaner cut like pork loin is perfect.

It’s baffling that roasted pork sandwiches aren’t more popular.

It’s time to change that. Give these scrumptious creations the spotlight they deserve!

3. Italian Pork Sandwiches

If you’ve ever visited the City of Brotherly Love, you know Philly has some serious sandwich game. 

Cheesesteaks are iconic, but Philly’s real hidden gem is the mouthwatering Italian pork sandwich.

This drool-worthy creation is a true work of culinary art.

It starts with slow-cooked pulled pork and flavorful, broccoli rabe (or spinach, depending on who you ask). 

Next comes a layer of peppers, followed by a generous helping of gooey provolone cheese.

All of these ingredients come together in a perfectly crispy yet soft Italian roll. Yum!

4. Easy Cuban Sandwich

Meet the easy Cuban sandwich! It’s loaded with two types of pork, Swiss cheese, pickles, and mustard.

Then, it’s toasted, and pressed to perfection!

This sandwich is all about flavorful layers, starring two kinds of pork: smoked ham and sliced tenderloin.

Tangy pickles, mustard, and melted Swiss cheese complete the irresistible Cubano.

Whipping up this flavor-packed sandwich is a breeze! You’re sure to crave it weekly.

6. Pork Tenderloin Sandwich

Behold the Midwest-style pork tenderloin sandwich! This crunchy, juicy wonder is pure sandwich bliss!

You can think of these sandwiches as a wiener schnitzel’s cousin.

But these sandwiches are made with flattened pork loin instead of veal, and nestled between hamburger buns.

Fun Fact: This Midwest gem is believed to have originated at Nick’s Kitchen in Huntington, Indiana. Trust me, you have to try it!

7. Ultimate Pork Burger

These sliders boast a fantastic flavor combo.

They’re made with barbecue sauce, pineapple, Hawaiian buns, pepper jack cheese, and a buttery sauce.

They’re perfect for using up leftover shredded pork! If it’s already coated in BBQ sauce, no worries, just skip adding extra.

Have kalua pork? Even better for these sandwiches!

9. Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese Sandwich

These pulled pork grilled cheese sandwiches are a heavenly combo of sweet and smoky pork with creamy cheese. They’re pure satisfaction. 

Juicy pulled pork is smothered in finger-licking BBQ sauce and topped with bubbly cheddar and crispy onion straws.

Slow-cooker pulled pork is so easy to make.

But these sloppy Joes are absolutely scrumptious!

Don’t expect authentic Cuban cuisine, but that doesn’t make them any less tasty!

They’re ready in just 30 minutes and are bursting with delicious flavors.

13. Coca-Cola Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Coca-Cola pulled pork sandwiches are sweet, savory, and totally irresistible.

Plus, making pulled pork is a breeze! Just pop the ingredients in the Crockpot and wait. 

Soda like Coca-Cola caramelizes during slow cooking, adding sweetness to the pork.

And barbecue sauce and liquid smoke make this pork unbelievably good.

Pro Tip: Choose the right pork: shoulder (best) or butt for moist, tender BBQ.

Avoid leaner pork tenderloin as it can be dry, but usable with extra sauce.
