BBQ Pork Tenderloin Sliders with Mango Slaw

Description

Pulled pork is the quintessential BBQ sandwich . But while it's undeniably delicious, pulled pork takes several hours to cook, not to mention high in calories and fat. If you're looking for a faster, and healthier, way to enjoy a BBQ pork sandwich, try pork tenderloin. Incredibly lean and tender, pork tenderloin isn't as decadent as a Boston butt, but it cooks much quicker and is relatively guilt-free. While you might be tempted to pull it, resist that temptation—pork tenderloin is best served sliced or cubed.

If you don't have all day to smoke a pork shoulder, this recipe for BBQ Pork Tenderloin Sliders with Mango Slaw is a good alternative, finishing in about 2-3 hours, and are a good option for those seeking a healthy BBQ option. Full of fresh flavors and big taste, the mango slaw ups the ante on the typical coleslaw and can even be found pre-made in some grocery stores.
