Alabama Pulled Pork Sandwiches w/ White BBQ Sauce

Yield: 12 servings (Serv. Size: 2 biscuits, 1/4 cup pork, 2 1/2 t. sauce)

Prep Time: 30 min

Cook Time: 1 hr, 15 min

This pork is so delicious that you would think it roasts all day long. This is a great, quick-and-easy pulled pork recipe. The biscuits are delicious too, and the sauce was noted as 'fabulous' by our guests!

Ingredients:

SAUCE:
1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons white vinegar
1 teaspoon coarsely ground fresh pepper
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
dash of salt

PORK:
1 1/4 pounds pork tenderloin, trimmed
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup water
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

BISCUITS:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed cooked sweet potato (about 3/4 pound)
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
3 Tablespoons butter, melted
2/3 cup fat-free milk

Directions:

1. Prepare sauce: Combine sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Cover and chill.

2. Prepare pork: Cut pork in half lengthwise; cut crosswise into 2 1/2-inch chunks. Combine apple cider vinegar and remaining pork ingredients in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Add pork to pan. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 1 hour or until tender. Remove pork from cooking liquid; shred with 2 forks. Place pork in a serving dish; pour cooking liquid over pork.

3. Prepare biscuits: Preheat oven to 425°F. Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Combine potato, sugar, butter and milk; stir well. Pour over dry ingredients; stir until a soft dough forms (dough will feel sticky). Turn dough out onto a floured surface; knead lightly 5 to 6 times. Roll dough into a 10-inch circle; cut 24 biscuits with a floured 2-inch biscuit cutter. You'll need to cut and then re-roll scraps and cut again. Place biscuits on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake for 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove biscuits from pan; cool on a wire rack.

4. To assemble sandwiches, place pork and a dollop of the white barbecue sauce in between two biscuits.

    I rate this as YUMMY! As a Weight Watcher I didn’t think 2 biscuits looked like enough, but with my sides it was plenty.
