We've borrowed the deep-South tradition of pulled pork sandwiches and pointed it in the direction of the Caribbean by using classic Jamaican seasonings: thyme, allspice, and garlic.
These sandwiches are great for weeknight dinners or for picnics: just pack the filling and the buns separately and put them together once you've reached the park or the beach.
You can't go wrong with potato salad and/or a bright-flavored avocado salad as a side dish (check out our choices from the recipes listed at left).
Maybe it's because Cuba isn't that far from Jamaica, but somehow, a cool Cuban mojito tastes as good with this warm, spicy pork as does a frosty beer.
