Pulled Pork Sandwich with Mango BBQ Sauce

  • Mango Barbecue Sauce:
  • 1 mango, peeled, pitted and mashed
  • 1 jalapeño peppers, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups bottled barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • Hot sauce (optional)
  • Pulled Pork:
  • 2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3 pound boneless pork loin, cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 mango, peeled, pitted and mashed
  • Additional Ingredients:
  • Soft rolls
  • Mango Slaw (optional)


Prepare the sauce by stirring together all sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes.

For the pork, stir together spices in a medium bowl; add pork and toss until coated. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a Dutch oven or stock pot. Add pork and cook until browned on all sides (in batches if pot is narrow). Remove from pot. Heat remaining oil and add onion; cook and stir over medium-high heat for 5 minutes to brown. Add pork back to pot with mango and 1 1/2 cups mango barbecue sauce (reserve extra sauce for serving); cover and cook over low heat for 2 1/2 hours or until meat shreds easily with a fork.

Serve shredded pork on rolls with a drizzle of barbecue sauce. Great with a spoonful of Sweet Mango Slaw on top or served on the side.
