Ingredients

  • ½

    cup apple cider vinegar

  • ½

    cup ketchup

  • ¼

    cup plus 2 Tablespoons Creole or spicy brown mustard

  • 1

    Tablespoon molasses

  • 2

    Tablespoons packed light brown sugar

  • 2

    teaspoons paprika

  • kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 1

    3-to-4 pound boneless pork shoulder

  • 2

    links andouille sausage

  • 8

    soft sesame buns

  • pickle slices and potato chips, for serving

Directions

1. Whisk 1 1/2 cups water, the vinegar, ketchup, 1/4 cup mustard, the molasses and 1 Tablespoon brown sugar in a 7-to-8-quart slow cooker. 2. Combine the remaining 1 Tablespoon brown sugar, the paprika, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Rub all over the pork, then add to the slow cooker along with the sausage. Cover and cook on low, 8 hours. 3. Remove the pork and sausage and set aside to cool slightly. Skim off the excess fat from the cooking liquid, then strain into a large skillet and bring to a boil. Cook until reduced by one-third, about 15 minutes. 4. Shred the pork with a fork and coarsely chop the sausage. Toss the pork and sausage with enough of the reduced cooking liquid to moisten; season with salt. 5. Whisk the mayonnaise and the remaining 2 Tablespoons mustard in a small bowl; spread on the buns. Fill with the pulled pork and pickle slices. Serve with potato chips.
