It was good AFTER adding store bought BBQ sauce to the bland sauce and a little low fat mayo to the slaw.
We enjoyed this but next time I'll leave the loin whole, marinate it longer, and cook it longer to make for larger slices. The way the recipe calls for makes eating the sandwich a bit messy as the bits of meat fall out. I really liked the flavor of the sauce, though I didn't use low sodium ketchup.
LOVED this recipe! I used a pork tenderloin that was 2.44 lbs, so I doubled the recipe and had more than enough. I also added some molasses and Franks Hot Sauce to the BBQ sauce for some kick - it was AWESOME! The slaw is a must! I baked the pork at 425 for 40 minutes and it was moist and the sauce had cooked to perfection. This is definitely a recipe we'll be making over and over again! Next time, we'll try it on the grill!
I liked the idea of this sandwich, but the marinade/sauce was really not to my liking. It just tasted like ketchup to me. I'd definitely try the recipe again with a barbecue sauce I know we like, whether bottled or homemade (like CL's Brown Sugar Barbecue Sauce, June 2006).
Will definitely make this recipe again. I think my husband said 'wow, this is good!' three times while eating dinner. The sweet/salty shredded cabbage makes a tasty addition to the BBQ pork. Decent serving size too.
My rating is for the pork only. Delicious! I used a tenderloin that was about one and a half pounds, so I one and a halved the sauce. Marinated it for a couple hours, then seared it in a very hot cast iron skillet. Baked it around 375 for about 20 minutes to a half hour. Perfect! My husband made varying affirming comments the whole time he was eating, and our three kids (ages 2, 4 and 6) all ate at least some - even the vegetarian. That is affirmation enough for me! Good work - this one's a keeper!
Wow! Each part on its own was good, but put the slaw with the pork, pour on a little reserved sauce and you have a very delicious dish. Quick and easy - we baked it instead of grilling and enjoyed the leftovers the next day for lunch. Another recipe I highly recommend.
