Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

with Cucumber Tomato Salad

The grilled cheese is one of those classic comforts that can put a smile on your face and take you to a happy place. So how could it possibly be improved upon? By adding juicy, fall-apart-tender pulled pork, which basically makes this sandwich a hug for your taste buds. All that warm, gooey goodness needs something cool to calm it down, so we’re adding a tomato cucumber salad to make the meal complete.


Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Medium Pan
Large Pan
Small Bowl



Wash and dry all produce. Take out 2 TBSP butter and let soften at room temperature. Halve, peel, and slice onion. Dice tomato. Halve cucumber lengthwise, then slice crosswise into half-moons.

Make Onion Jam

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add onion. Cook, tossing, until softened, about 5 minutes. (TIP: Add a splash of water if it burns.) Stir in 1 tsp sugar and cook until just browned, 3-5 minutes. Pour in 1 TBSP vinegar (we’ll use more later) and let evaporate, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.

Crisp Pork

While onion cooks, tear pork into bite-sized pieces with your hands. Heat a large drizzle of vegetable oil in a large pan over medium-high heat (use a nonstick pan if you have one). Add pork and a big pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, tossing occasionally, until beginning to crisp, 5-6 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside; wipe out pan.

Toss Salad and Butter Bread

In a small bowl, toss together tomato, cucumber, remaining vinegar, and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside. Lower heat under pan used for pork to medium and add a drizzle of vegetable oil. Spread butter in a thin layer on one side of each bread slice, using about ½ TBSP per side.

Fill and Toast Sandwiches

Place 2 bread slices buttered-side down on your cutting board and top each with cheddar, pork, and onion jam. Place remaining slices on top, butteredside up, creating sandwiches. Add sandwiches to pan and toast until bread is golden brown and cheese melts, 2-4 minutes per side.

Finish and Serve

Cut sandwiches in half and divide between plates. Serve with salad on the side.
