Recipe: Pulled Mushroom Sandwich

The other night for dinner my husband asked if we could have Pulled Mushroom Sandwiches.  Now these are a play off of a pulled pork sandwich and are delicious!  We received a bunch of shiitake mushrooms in our CSA this week and I had some left over cremini mushrooms as well so it was a prefect time to make these yummy sandwiches. I served them with a side of sweet potato fries and steamed brussels sprouts.
