Barbecued Pork Sandwiches

“While I was a grad student, myself and three other labmates (Delandy, Megan, and Tim) decided we’d each make lunch for the group of us one day out of the week. I brought Chinese Chicken Salad and Blueberry Pie, Delandy brought spareribs, rice and fresh mango, Megan brought Barbara’s Quiche Lorraine and a fruit salad, and Tim brought these Barbecued Pork Sandwiches and a hot potato salad. It was a great idea and it was a shame we didn’t plan more weeks like this.” – April Ferre
