King Oyster Pulled (Pork) Sandwiches
King oyster mushrooms are versatile and meaty in texture. By running a fork down the mushroom, it "pulls" apart into strings that are perfect for BBQ pulled sandwiches.
- 1 pound King Oyster Mushrooms
- 1/3 cup BBQ Sauce
- 1-2 tablespoon Beer optional
- 2 Buns
- 1.5 tablespoon BBQ or 'pork' seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon Granulated Garlic
- Salt & Pepper to taste
Pre-heat the oven @400°F.
Shred the mushrooms by running a fork along the fibres, away from the cap. Pull apart with fingers and place in a large bowl.
Toss with garlic, BBQ seasoning and a pinch of salt and pepper; toss to coat.
Heat a large skillet over high heat with 1 Tbsp oil. Add mushrooms and cook until brown on all sides, stirring occasionally, approximately 8 minutes. Remove from skillet back to the bowl and toss with BBQ sauce (and beer if desired).
Transfer mushrooms onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake 15 minutes until browned and caramelized. Serve on toasted buns.
KING OYSTER MUSHROOM: You can use regular oyster mushrooms if you can’t find king oysters, though you will need many more. Button or champignon mushrooms don’t work well in this recipe.
