Over the past few months I have been able to create with P.A.N. Cornmeal and have had a lot of fun experimenting. One of the fun new things that I was able to create were these areas. Which is corn flatbread. I love how popular flatbread is becoming. And these corn flatbreads were a fun twist. One of my go to flatbreads are BBQ chicken flatbreads. So when I thought about what to create for these fun pocket sandwiches I thought about how much my family loves cornbread with pulled pork.
So that is how these pulled pork BBQ Arepas came to life! So smoke, grill, slow cook, and cook up your favorite pulled pork recipe and top them with your favorite homemade or store bought BBQ sauce! Cook up these easy grilled arepas slice, stuff with pulled pork and BBQ sauce, and serve up! My son even wanted to pack one in his school lunch the next day!
Using cornmeal to create a flatbread is a fun way to switch up your normal flatbread. Cornmeal is a staple in South America and is making its way into kitchen everywhere across the U.S. And since cornmeal is a pantry staple these days you will have all ingredients you need to make arepas right in your home! Quick, easy, and convenient! And defiantly a simple process for making a bread recipe right in your own home!

2 cups P.A.N. precooked white cornmeal
2 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
Pour water and salt in a medium sized bowl. Slowly add the P.A.N. cornmeal while stirring. Then knead for 1 to 2 minutes. The dough should become smooth. Then let the dough rest for about 5 minutes. Sprinkle a little cornmeal down and then place the dough on the counter and divide the dough into 8-10 equal parts. Then using your hands shape into 4 to 5 inch circle disks. Cook for 5 minutes (per side) on a slightly greased pan over medium heat or on the grill.
While still warm slice open lengthwise spread with your favorite BBQ sauce. Stuff with your favorite pulled pork and top with more BBQ sauce and add some diced onion or coleslaw on top if you would like! Then Enjoy!
