Buggy's Pulled Pork Sandwich

This fantastic sandwich looks like it is loaded with calories, but it's not. Even if you use a full quarter pound of meat, coleslaw, barbecue sauce, and bun you will only consume 381 calories! It even gets a B+ nutrition rating.

Pulled Pork Sandwich


1 pork tenderloin, 2 pounds
16 oz ginger beer*
8 oz barbecue sauce**
1 1/2 cups coleslaw
8 rolls or hamburger buns
edible flowers for garnish


In a large pot with a lid, slow simmer the tenderloin in the ginger beer until the meat is fork tender and can be pulled apart easily. Add more ginger beer if needed, but you do not want the meat to have too much liquid at the end of cooking.

After pulling apart the meat, mix in the barbecue sauce. Top rolls with the meat, top with coleslaw, decorate with a garnish of edible flowers, and enjoy!


*Typically ginger beer has more bite from ginger than ginger ale. It is a deeper, richer full-bodied flavor. Buggy uses ginger beer from a company called The Ginger People.

**If possible, take the time to make a homemade barbecue sauce instead of using a bottled version. There are a lot of great recipes out there. Here's a great sauce from The CC Palate!
