Recipe by Mareesme

These great sandwiches are from a recipe sent me by a friend. (Times listed do not include 24-hour marinating time.) I use the marinade and sauce recipes for other dishes, since we enjoy it so much.

Very good. Used a smaller pork roast for the two of us. I was really impressed! The sauce was spicy but good, and I'll make it again.
