Lightened Up Pulled Pork
Lightened Up Pulled Pork
3 lb. boneless pork tenderloin
1 large onion chopped
2 cups barbecue sauce
2 1/2 tbsp. brown sugar
2 1/2 tbsp. wine vinegar
8 to 10 potato rolls (or other soft rolls) split
Way less fat than its authentic Carolina cousin. We don't think you'll miss it a bit!

Prep time: 20 minutes, Cook time: about 5 hours (high)
or 10 hours (low), Makes: 8 to 10 servings

Trim fat from pork then cut into 3-inch cubes. Place in a large slow cooker with onion, barbecue sauce, brown sugar and vinegar. Cook on HIGH for 5 hours or LOW for 10 hours. Remove meat with a slotted spoon. Shred pork using 2 forks and stir in half the sauce. Place meat inside rolls and spoon remaining sauce over top; close sandwiches.
Wine Suggestion
Syrah make a silky counterpart to the BBQ pork. (And red wines are loaded with heart-healthy polyphenols!)
