Alabama Pulled Pork Sandwiches with White Barbecue Sauce

Ingredients:

SAUCE:

  • 1/2 cup light 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.

    This was a little time consuming but worth it! Lots of flavor and the sauce was really good too! My biscuits were a little flat but tasted really good! I made a side of low fat coleslaw with it too….yum!

    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.
