BBQ Pork Sliders



BBQ Pork Sliders

Ingredients:
1 Pork Tenderloin
1 ½ C. Stubbs Original BBQ Sauce or your favorite
1 C. Red Cabbage, Finely Shredded
2 Medium Onions
5 T. Butter
1 t. Sugar
Salt & Pepper
8 Sweet Hawaiian Dinner Rolls, Cut in half and toasted


Pork Tenderloin:Take the tenderloin out of the fridge 30 minutes before cooking. Prep the tenderloin by removing the fat and silver skin from the meat. Salt and Pepper all sides of the tenderloin. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Put about 2 tablespoons of olive oil in an ovenproof skillet and sear the tenderloin over medium-high heat to brown all sides, about 3 minutes in all.

Place skillet in the oven and roast 30 minutes, until internal temperature is 145 degrees. Completely cool, so you can slice extremely thin and shred. Once the pork is shredded, place into a sauce pan with the BBQ sauce and cook until heated.

Caramelized Onions:Peel and cut in half lengthwise the onion. Then proceed to thinly slice each half of the onion. Melt the butter gently in a large saucepan and add the onions. Toss to completely coat the onions with the melted butter. Add the sugar, salt and pepper. Cook the onions over medium heat until caramelized. (Lightly brown) Set aside to cool.

Assemble:
Lay each roll in half with toasted side up. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of BBQ pork mixture on the bottom bun, then top with one tablespoon of caramelized onions and a big pinch of the shredded cabbage. Top with the other half of the toasted bun. Enjoy!
