Hawaiian Pineapple Wraps with BBQ Au Jus
I’ve never met a wrap I don’t like. Really it’s the darndest thing, you can fill a tortilla with ANYTHING and I will eat it, no questions asked. There is a fabulous little hole-in-the-wall shop in Kansas City called Longboards Wraps and Bowls and if you ever find yourself craving a Hawaiian style wrap, slider or just something delicious, you should look them up.
They were the inspiration for these wraps that I made as a lunch special last week at work. We had some, conveniently, already pulled pork, a bag of slaw and a pineapple sitting around so I tossed them together with BBQ, Teriyaki, and Cilantro ranch and then tossed a tortilla on the grill for exactly three seconds (I once caught a tortilla on fire trying to get some grill marks on it and after that exciting shift the tortillas and I have a mutual respect for the grill).
The wrap was a hit! My coworker and I stood at opposite ends of the line chewing while a mutual and pleasant silence ensued broken only by nods of “yes, this is SO good.”
I was so excited about this wrap that I wanted to make it at home. However, I don’t have a smoker which resulted in braising the pork shoulder in red wine and BBQ sauce and guess what the leftover juices turned into? Au Jus! BBQ Au Jus.. so now on top the already amazing wrap, you have a warm bowl of BBQ Jus to dip the wrap in. As you dip and dunk and drip it all over you really just can’t help thinking what a great life it is you lead. So don’t walk, run to the nearest store and fetch yourself the fixings for these amazing wraps.
