Recipe Details
Ingredients
  • 1 pound(s) uncooked lean pork tenderloin
  • 3 1/3 Tbsp barbecue sauce, divided (equals 3 Tbsp plus 1 tsp)
  • 3 Tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 2 cup(s) packaged coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots)
  • 3 Tbsp uncooked scallion(s), sliced
  • 4 item(s) mixed grain hamburger roll(s)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450ºF. Line a shallow roasting pan with nonstick foil or coat pan with cooking spray. (You can also cook the pork on an outdoor grill.)
  2. Place pork in pan and brush with 2 tablespoons of barbecue sauce. Roast until an instant read thermometer inserted in center of pork registers 160ºF for medium, about 25 minutes. Transfer pork to a cutting board; cover loosely with foil and let stand 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk mayonnaise, water, vinegar and pepper until smooth. Add coleslaw mix and scallions; toss to mix and coat.
  4. Slice pork into 20 thin pieces. For each sandwich, place 5 slices of pork on the bottom half of each roll and drizzle with 1 teaspoon of barbecue sauce; top with 1/2 cup of coleslaw and cover with top half of roll. Yields 1 sandwich per serving.
