It’s football season – hooray!
That means games several days a week and on Sundays, dedicated “game food” to serve to my tribe. I love it when all of our boys are here and they decide to watch the game with us (as opposed to going someplace else to watch.) The more the merrier, so I don’t mind if they have their friends in tow… just as long as they are here.
A big part of game day, of course, is the food. What are you eating when you are watching the game? In addition to Game Day staples like Buffalo Chicken Dip, chips and salsa, and so on, we like to served pulled pork sandwiches or little short rib sliders that we cook up in the crock pot. But sometimes I need to serve a crowd and did not plan ahead with my trusty crock pot… so I am loving this new trick I found from Campbell’s Chunky soup: It’s so chunky and flavorful that it works as a sandwich. Seriously.
We have long been fans of cooking with Campbell’s soups. Good grief, in the days before Pinterest or the Food Network, this Campbell’s cookbook is THE only reason a decent meal was ever produced in my kitchen!
However, this is the first time I have ever tried something like this, and it is pretty darn good. In about 3 minutes I was able to make BBQ pork and spicy coleslaw sandwiches that my guys loved.
So easy to do! I warmed the Campbell’s Chunky BBQ Seasoned Pork on the stove top, season to taste, then took a slotted spoon* and piled all of the yummy BBQ pork and chunks of potatoes onto a whole wheat burger bun, but you could use a brioche bun, a pretzel bun, really anything. (You could even spoon this spiced BBQ pork over a hot dog!)
Top it all off with some creamy spicy coleslaw. I make a yummy chipotle lime coleslaw and it was a great addition to this quick and easy BBQ pork sandwich. Using soup. Who would have thought!?
This is so easy and was a big hit. *Make sure you use a slotted spoon, or you will need to eat this with a knife and fork from the beginning!
