Michael Mina's Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Though he runs one of the edgiest and priciest restaurants in San Francisco, Michael Mina still appreciates the languid delight of sweet, slow-cooked pork butt so tender you can pull it apart with your fingers. His recipe for the Southern barbecue classic is one of my favorites to make at home: prep time 5 minutes, cook time 5 1/2 hours, making it perfect for group gatherings when you'd rather talk than cook.

I first ate this recipe, torn from Esquire magazine, at my dad's house, and my boyfriend and I made it again this weekend during a weekend getaway with his family. It was as crowd-pleasing as ever, so juicy and moist you don't even need barbecue sauce — though a topping of cole slaw is a nice touch.
