    Trader Joe's Boneless Pork Tenderloin, 16 oz
    San Marzano Crushed Tomatoes, 2 cup
    365 Organic German Mustard, 4 tsp
    Brown Sugar, 4 tsp packed
    *Cumin seed, 1 tbsp
    Chili powder, 1 tbsp
    Garlic, 2 clove
    Salt, .25 tsp
    Seven Stars Farms - Original Plain Organic Yogurt, .25 cup
    Cider Vinegar, 1.25 tbsp
    Celery seed, .25 tsp
    Dole Classic Cole Slaw Mix, 6.75 cup
    Iggy's Whole Wheat Roll (2 oz), 4 serving


Heat up a non-stick skillet. Cut the tenderloin into 4 chunks, season with salt, and sear on all sides, just until the meat is browned. You don't need to cook it all the way right now. Once the meat is browned, remove from pan and set aside.

In the same pan, add garlic, crushed tomatoes, brown sugar, cumin, and chili powder and bring to a boil. When the sauce is bubbling, add the port back in, turn down the heat a bit, cover and cook for about 18 minutes.

When the time has elapsed, remove the meat again and let the sauce reduce to about half (it takes about 15 minutes). In the meantime, using two forks, shred the pork. When the sauce is reduced, add the pork and some vinegar (about a teaspoon) and stir. Remove from heat.

Also, either while the meat is cooking in the sauce or the sauce is reducing, prepare the coleslaw. In a large bowl, mix the yogurt, celery seed, vinegar, salt and pepper. Add the shredded cole slaw mix and stir until coated.

To assemble the sandwiches, cut the rolls in half, put about 1/4 of the pork mixture and some of the coleslaw on the bottom half. It's sloppy, but delicious!
