To make pulled pork*:
STIR together pork and barbecue sauce; microwave or stir over heat until heated through. Cover and set aside to keep warm.
To make pancakes:
WHISK together pancake mix, cornmeal, milk, egg and salt until well combined in medium bowl; stir in cheese.
SPRAY large nonstick skillet with cooking spray or lightly brush with oil; place over medium heat until hot.
ADD scant ¼ cup of batter for each pancake. Cook until one or two bubbles remain open on top (reduce heat if browning too quickly on underside). Turn over and cook until golden on second side. Serve topped with pulled pork. Serve with coleslaw on top of pork or alongside.
*To prepare pork in a slow cooker, add ½ cup broth or water to bottom of slow cooker and top with pork shoulder. Cook on low 8 hours or until tender.
The “batter” was thick enough that I formed patties in my hand and fried them in the pan like an arepa. I was expecting more of a pancake batter consistency. Not bad, but also not amazing.
