Servings 4 sandwiches


  • 4-6 Brioche Buns or your favorite buns/rolls
  • 2-3 lb. Pork Loin Roast boneless
  • 1 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Water

Balsamic Glaze

  • 1/2 cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Brown Sugar

Garlic Aioli

  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 Garlic Clove minced
  • 1/4 tsp Dried Parsley
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper


  • In a small bowl, combine¬†brown sugar, salt,¬†black pepper, paprika and garlic powder. Rub the pork on all sides with this mixture.
  • Add 1-2 tablespoons of oil to a cast iron skillet (or other nonstick skillet) over high heat. Once the skillet is very hot, carefully add the pork and sear on each side for about 30 seconds until a nice crust forms.
  • Transfer pork roast to a crockpot along with apple cider vinegar and water. Cook on high heat for 4 hours or on low heat for 8 hours. When done, pork will be very tender and pull apart easily with a fork.
  • While the pork is cooking: Make garlic aioli by whisking ingredients together in a small bowl. Cover and place in the fridge until ready to use.
  • About 15 minutes before you are ready to eat, make the balsamic glaze. Add balsamic vinegar, and brown sugar to a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until sauce thickens and turns into a glaze, stirring occasionally, about 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove pork from the crockpot and toss with the balsamic glaze.
  • Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat with a little butter. Place buns cut side down on skillet and toast until golden. Or you can just toast them in a toaster oven.
  • Spread garlic aioli on each bun and pile balsamic pork on each bun. Serve sandwiches with your favorite side dishes! Enjoy!!
