Sesame Pulled Pork Sandwiches Recipe

I wanted to build a better pork sandwich, and this Asian-style filling was a huge hit with my husband and co-workers. Bring on the wasabi mayo. —Jennifer Berry, Lexington, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 4-1/2 hours YIELD:12 servings


  • 3 pork tenderloins (1 pound each)
  • 1-3/4 cups reduced-fat sesame ginger salad dressing, divided
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • SLAW:
  • 1 package (14 ounces) coleslaw mix
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat sesame ginger salad dressing
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 12 multigrain hamburger buns, split
  • Wasabi mayonnaise, optional


  • 1. Place tenderloins in a 5-qt. slow cooker coated with cooking spray; pour 3/4 cup salad dressing over pork, turning to coat. Cook, covered, on low until meat is tender, 4-5 hours.
  • 2. Remove pork; cool slightly. Shred meat into bite-sized pieces; return to slow cooker. Stir in brown sugar and remaining salad dressing. Cook, covered, until heated through, 30-45 minutes longer.
  • 3. Combine slaw ingredients. Serve pork on buns with slaw and, if desired, mayonnaise. Yield: 12 servings.

Recipe Note

Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with Newman’s Own Sesame Ginger Dressing.
Health Tip: Cuts of pork with "loin" in the name, like pork tenderloin and pork loin, are some of the leanest options. However, pork tenderloin will shred much more easily than pork loin, making it a a great lean meat choice for pulled pork sandwiches.

"Our whole family loved this recipe! I did use a pork roast instead of pork tenderloins because I had one on hand. It worked great, but I did need to increase the cooking time to 8-9 hours. The slaw is crunchy and delicious!"
