It's one of our most popular Meat Department products for good reason, but our BBQ pulled pork is a surprisingly versatile player in the kitchen. Don't save it for just sandwiches – it's fantastic in tacos and burritos, on nachos, and even pizza.

Love pulled pork sandwiches? Take them to the next level by adding coleslaw – yes, right there on the bun! Try Classic Coleslaw or the ultimate slaw, Herbed Coleslaw, from our Deli Case.
