The tangy barbecue sauce on this delicious pulled pork sandwich is completed with an apple shallot relish, giving this recipe a distinctive flavor that can be enjoyed at a backyard barbecue, game day or every day.

1

Preheat oven to 360°F (convection oven) or 390°F (upper and lower heat). Wash sweet potato, cutting it lengthwise and then in wedges. Peel and thinly slice shallots.

2

Peel and finely chop garlic.

3

Peel apple, remove core, and cut into very small cubes. Quarter cherry tomatoes. In a bowl, season and mix sweet potato wedges with 2 tbsp. oil and salt and pepper to taste.

4

Place the sweet potato wedges on a baking tray lined with baking paper, and bake on middle rack for 20 minutes, turning once after 10 minutes, until golden brown.

5

Meanwhile, heat butter in a small saucepan and sauté shallots and apple for 2 minutes on medium heat. Gradually add half a cup of water and simmer for 13 minutes until liquid has evaporated.

6

In a bowl, mix 5 tbsp. balsamic vinegar with a ¾ cup of water. Add 3 tbsp. sugar to a small saucepan and caramelize on high heat until golden brown. Then deglaze with the balsamic vinegar and water mixture.

7

Add tomato paste, smoked paprika and half the garlic and reduce to medium heat for 2-3 minutes until slightly viscous. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

8

Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a pan and fry pulled pork with remaining garlic at medium heat for 1 minute. Add 4 tbsp. of the barbecue sauce, mix well, and fry for another minute.

9

Halve burger buns and generously spread the bottom halves with apple-and-shallot relish. Mix wild herb salad and tomatoes in a bowl with 2 tbsp. oil, 1 tsp. balsamic vinegar, 1 tsp sugar, and salt.
