I hadn’t had King’s Hawaiian bread since I was a child, but recently I began following them on twitter and every time a tweet would be posted I would instantly crave their rolls. This gave me an idea. I was making pulled pork over the weekend, so why not create a sandwich with their rolls and some Pork Barrel BBQ sauce that I recently purchased. The combination sounded so ‘ono’.
Here’s the 12 pack of Original King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls I purchased and the ensuing photo essay from my King’s Hawaiian/Pork Barrel BBQ meal.
I took a couple of ‘bite’ shots, but they came out too bright. Suffice to say the combination of the sweet King’s Hawaiian rolls (they are sweet, but not overly sweet), the deep and rich flavor of the Pork Barrel BBQ Sauce, and the smokey pulled pork (I removed the bark this time as I didn’t want it to alter anything) were an explosion of flavor for my palete. If you haven’t tried this combination I recommend you give it a shot. I don’t know how well brisket will hold up to the sweetness of the bread, but pork and surely smoked turkey/chicken would be perfect.
