  1. Heat the canola oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and let sizzle for 1 minute. Add the gochujang, soy sauce, honey, 1 tablespoon rice vinegar, and 2 teaspoons sesame oil. Stir and bring to a simmer, then add the Kroger® Hardwood Smoked Pulled Pork and toss to coat. Cover and cook until the pork is heated through, 5–6 minutes.
  2. In a medium bowl, toss together the cabbage and shredded carrots. Drizzle the remaining 2 tablespoons rice vinegar and 1 tablespoon sesame oil over the vegetables. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and toss to coat.
  3. Assemble the sandwiches: Divide the pork between the bottom brioche buns. Top each with the cabbage slaw, a couple sprigs of cilantro, and a couple slices of jalapeño. Finish with the top buns.
  4. Enjoy!
