Brazilian flair pulled pork sandwich is a mix of latino flavors. We included mortadella that is such an important ingredient for Brazilian sandwiches. To build this delicious Brazilian sandwich we added a homemade smoked pulled pork that we have made before. It’s delicious and it’s worth the time and work that you put in it.
Growing up I remember the days that my mom didn’t want to cook. She used to picked up my brothers and me at school and drive to a bakery to buy bread where the texture and taste was very similar to a baguette, only the shape was a little bit different. While she was driving we used to share the bread while it was warm! In Brazil, around 5:30 to 6:00 pm, all of the bakeries have lines of people buying bread. It’s very common to buy fresh and warm bread at this time.
For dinner, we would have a table full of mortadella, cheeses, jams and sweet breads to have as a meal. It was simple, but we loved it!! No veggies or obligations to eat things that we didn’t like at the time. Making this pulled pork sandwich with a Brazilian flair brought so many memories back and made me miss that time with my brothers. Enjoy!!
