Introduction

I was surprised by how good this recipe came out. I'm usually not a fan of bbq style sauces, but this one is not too sweet. The cooking is pretty hands-off, and the meat turns out nice and moist. Keep the cover on the whole time. I was surprised by how good this recipe came out. I'm usually not a fan of bbq style sauces, but this one is not too sweet.

Number of Servings: 3

Ingredients

    1 Pound of whole pork tenderloin (buy one that's just a bit over because you'll be trimming some of the fat away)
    1/3 cup of ketchup
    2 tbsp of cider vinegar
    1.5 tbsp of packed light brown sugar
    2 tsp smoked paprika
    2 tsp chili powder
    1 tsp ground cumin
    0.5 tsp garlic powder
    1/4 tsp salt

Tips

This recipe is from the book 400 Calorie Fix. I have found I cannot trust their calorie descriptions nor their portion sizes, so I have to input the ingredients here to double check.


Directions

Trim the pork and cut it into 2 inch pieces.

Mix all other ingredients together in a sauce pan or a dutch oven.

Add the pork, stir to coat and cook on medium-low for an hour. Stir occasionally.

Transfer the pork to a bowl, shred it using two forks, mix it with the sauce and serve.

Serving Size: Makes 3 cup servings

  • Very Good
    I added more of the spices to cover the ketchup flavoring, but it tastes good. It's in the slow cooker now. - 1/15/17
