Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • To make coleslaw: Whisk together vinegar, sugar, oil, Dijon mustard, celery seeds and mustard seeds in a mixing bowl. Add green and red cabbage and carrots; toss well. Season with salt and pepper.

  • To make barbecue sauce: Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and saute until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Add ketchup, vinegar, sugar, mustard, Worcestershire, hot pepper sauce and salt. Cook, stirring, until the mixture boils, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.

  • To cook pork and assemble sandwiches: Preheat the broiler. Place tenderloins on a broiler pan and season with salt and pepper. Broil 4 inches from the heat until lightly browned, about 6 minutes. Turn the tenderloins over and broil until the internal temperature registers 160 degrees F, 6 to 7 minutes longer. (The center should be juicy with just a trace of pink.) Let the meat stand for 5 minutes before cutting into thin strips. Add the meat to the barbecue sauce and toss well.

  • To assemble the sandwiches: Layer the coleslaw and the pork mixture inside rolls.

Contains my favorite cole slaw recipe I've made this recipe for years. My favorite part is the cole slaw. I detest mayonnaise... and love the clean mayo-free taste of the cole slaw in this recipe. I followed the recipe exactly except that I used less sugar in the cole slaw -- about half the amount called for. We eat these barbequed pork sandwiches a few times a year and always enjoy them. Pros: No mayo in the cole slaw Read More

Yummy! I made this sandwich with left-over pork i had in the fridge. We didn't have any hot sauce so i didn't put it in the barbeque sauce. It was yummy! Read More
