Barbecue Pork Sandwich
1 1/2 teaspoons whole-grain oat flour
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
Pinch of black pepper
1/2 pound pork tenderloin, cut into 3/4" cubes
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 cup orange juice, preferably fresh-squeezed
1/3 cup white vinegar
1 tablespoon hickory smoke flavoring
1 tablespoon barbecue sauce (7 grams carbs or less per 2 tablespoons), or more to taste
1/2 cup onion strips (optional)
2 whole-grain or whole-wheat hamburger buns
In a medium resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
Add the pork. Seal the bag and shake to evenly coat the cubes. Refrigerate for at least
Preheat a medium nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat until it is hot enough for a
spritz of water to sizzle on it. Add the oil. Scatter the pork cubes into the pan. Cook,
turning as needed, for about 5 minutes, or until pork is browned on all sides. Reduce the
heat to medium.
Add the orange juice, vinegar, and smoke flavoring. When the mixture comes to a
boil, reduce the heat to low so the mixture simmers. Cover the pan. Cook, stirring
occasionally, for 1 hour, or until the pork is very tender. With a wooden spoon, shred the
pork pieces and mix in the barbecue sauce.
If the onion is desired, 5 minutes before serving, coat a small nonstick skillet with olive
oil spray. Set over medium heat. Add the onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5
minutes, or until tender.
Meanwhile, place the bun halves, cut sides down, in a medium nonstick skillet set over
medium heat. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until toasted. Place the bun bottoms on serving
plates. Spoon half of the pork mixture onto each bun bottom. Top with onion and
additional barbecue sauce if desired. Cover with the bun tops. Serve your barbeque
pork sandwich immediately.
