Reviews forTangy Pulled Pork Sandwiches
"Good basic recipe but I added a few spices like granulated garlic, onion and a squirt of some really hot BBQ sauce I keep in the refrigerator. I also topped the sandwiches with grilled pineapple instead of cole slaw. They were a hit and I will be keeping this recipe handy!"
"Would you advise...does the nutritional information include the buns? Trying to make sure I calculate my Weight Watchers points correctly. Thank you!"
"I doubled the recipe and made it today for a church potluck. No leftovers to bring home, so it seems to have been a very popular dish. More importantly, my husband gave it a thumbs up, so I plan on filing it away as an easy weeknight dinner for our family of three. Simple and tasty, and I love crockpot cooking."
"I used 2.5 pounds of tenderloin & quadrupled the sauce recipe. I didn't have brown mustard so used BBQ sauce instead. My family raved about this & declared this recipe a 110% keeper. Thank you for sharing Beki & for the other tips below. With the extra sauce, my tenderloin was perfectly moist & flavorful. (I had enough sauce left over that I was able to add a little more sauce after shredding the pork). :)"
"I loved the flavors of the sauce but there wasn't nearly enough! I will double it next time. Also, I found the tenderloin to be dry so I might try a different cut. But it was a great midweek super with plenty of leftovers for the next day."
"This is my go-to recipe when we're craving pulled pork sandwiches. So easy! Often times I double or triple this recipe in my 6 qt. slow cooker. Now if I could only thicken the sauce just a little. Perhaps a cornstarch or arrowroot slurry added to the sauce and turned to high heat in the crockpot while I'm shredding the meat. Pairs nicely with Renee Endress's recipe for Creamy Coleslaw Recipe here in Taste of Home."
"This marinade has great flavor. I would probably double the recipe next time, as I generally cook a larger size roast than the recipe calls for."
