    This is delicious. A nice twist on pulled pork. It’s been added to the family fav.

    Really good flavor, but I felt like the sauce was a little too thin for sandwiches. It just made the toasted buns soggy.

    Really good. Maybe a bit too saucy for my taste so I will cut down the sauce next time. I added a little red pepper flakes for some spice.

    Absolutely amazing!!! Pork tenderloin was so moist and juicy. Family told me it was restaurant quality, and we've had a lot of good BBQ, and I must say this recipe is a keeper! Made a larger batch, with more sauce and it turned out great. Paired it with coleslaw and mac and cheese, and had plenty of extras.

    this sounds like a great recipe, but can i just multiply everything by 7? I have a 7ish lb loin and am feeding a family of 6.

    Could I substitute Chicken for the pork? Several family members don't like pork but this recipe sounds delicious and I would love to make it.

    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!

    Pulled pork sandwiches couldn't get any easier than this and so tasty! The tenderloin was moist and the sauce is delicious. This recipe will be very easy to double or triple and I look forward to making it for friends and family.
