Ingredients

  • 1

    medium red onion, sliced

  • 8

    tablespoons cider vinegar, divided

  • Kosher salt

  • Black pepper, freshly ground

  • 1/4

    cup sour cream

  • 1/4

    cup mayonnaise

  • 1

    (12-ounce) package broccoli slaw, or 4 cups shredded broccoli stems

  • 1

    medium yellow onion, chopped

  • 1/4

    cup tomato paste

  • 1/4

    cup packed light brown sugar

  • 1

    tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1

    tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 1

    tablespoon Cajun seasoning

  • 1 1/2

    pounds pork shoulder, trimmed and cut into 2 pieces

  • 4

    thick slices sandwich bread, toasted

Directions

In a medium bowl, mix together the red onion, 4 tablespoons of the vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to 3 days. In a large bowl, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons of the remaining vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Fold in the broccoli slaw and refrigerate for up to 12 hours. In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, mix together the yellow onion, tomato paste, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, Cajun seasoning, the remaining 2 tablespoons of vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Add the pork and turn to coat. Cover and cook until the pork is very tender, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours (this will shorten total recipe time). Using 2 forks, shred the pork and mix it into the cooking liquid. Serve the pork and onions on the toast with the broccoli slaw.
