Pulled Pork Sandwiches

This is the best recipe for these sandwiches.  Because a pork tenderloin is low in fat you need to cook it in a slow cooker for the meat to become tender.  This is a Weight Watcher’s recipe which is an added bonus.

Pulled Pork Sandwiches

  • 1-1/2 lbs. pork tenderloin, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce (see below)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped

Barbecue sauce:

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 tsp. Tabasco (or to taste)
  • I also like to add Sirracha sauce to taste and then serve it on the side for those who like extra heat

I always double this recipe when I make this dish.  In addition I  have extra ingredients on hand to make additional sauce if I need to.  I brown the pork tenderloin for 5 to 10 minutes first, cool and cut into cubes,  but you do not need to; I like the extra flavor.

Place pork, barbecue sauce and onions in a 6-quart slow cooker and mix well.  Cook on high for 1 hour, then on low for 4-6 hours or until you can shred the meat easily.

Shred pork and serve; add more barbecue sauce if needed.   Serve either open faced or on a hamburger bun.  A nephew likes his sandwich with a slice of American cheese.
