Chipotle BBQ Pork Sandwiches Recipe

Chipotle BBQ Pork Sandwiches Recipe

“I first made these for a summer barbecue with guests who love traditional BBQ pork sandwiches but wanted something lighter. They loved these and didn’t miss the extra calories one bit. Crunchy coleslaw tames the heat!” —Priscilla Yee, Concord, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Grill: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped
  • 1 pork tenderloin (1 pound)
  • 1-1/2 cups coleslaw mix
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons Miracle Whip Light
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 4 hamburger buns, split

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the barbecue sauce, honey and peppers. Set aside 1/4 cup until serving.
  • 2. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack. Prepare grill for indirect heat, using a drip pan.
  • 3. Place pork over drip pan and grill, covered, over indirect medium-hot heat for 20-25 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°), basting occasionally with remaining barbecue sauce. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.
  • 4. Meanwhile, combine the coleslaw mix, sour cream, Miracle Whip Light and mustard. Brush cut sides of buns with reserved barbecue sauce. Cut pork into 1/4-in. slices; place on bun bottoms. Top with coleslaw and bun tops. Yield: 4 servings.
