Ingredients

1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons lower-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic
2 teaspoons sambal oelek (ground fresh chile paste) or 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
3/4 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
3/4 teaspoon dark sesame oil
12 ounces pork tenderloin, trimmed and thinly sliced
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 teaspoons canola oil, divided
1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 cup shaved carrot
1/4 cup (1-inch) diagonally cut green onions
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
4 (1 1/2-ounce) whole-wheat hamburger buns

Preparation

1. Combine first 6 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add pork to bowl; toss well to coat. Let pork mixture stand at room temperature 15 minutes.

2. Preheat broiler to high.

3. While pork marinates, combine vinegar, 1 teaspoon canola oil, and granulated sugar in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk. Add carrot, onions, and cilantro; toss to coat.

4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add remaining 1 teaspoon canola oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add pork to pan; cook 3 minutes or until done, turning occasionally.

5. While pork cooks, place buns on a baking sheet, cut sides up. Broil 1 minute or until lightly toasted. Top bottom halves of buns evenly with pork. Divide carrot mixture evenly among servings. Cover sandwiches with top halves of buns.
