Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches with Red Vinegar Sauce

This summer we’ve been making the most of our grill and smoker!  One of my family’s favorite summertime cook out foods is pulled pork sandwiches. The secret to our delicious pulled pork is a yummy red vinegar sauce that we make using El Yucateco® sauces.  Today I’m sharing a special sweepstakes from our friends at El Yucateco®, and I’m going to show you how we make the secret sauce, and I’ll also tell you about our method for cooking and serving up our delicious pork sandwiches.

 

El Yucateco Sauces

El Yucateco® has a variety of delicious sauces, and they are the number one consumer choice.  Their flavors include:

  • Green Chile Habanero

  • Jalapeno

El Yucateco® is a fun flavorful brand that people love and make a part of their every day life. I carry mine in my purse. It is great to bring camping, to a friends BBQ or to my favorite restaurant, the options are endless. The El Yucateco® Red Habanero Hot Sauce is made with fresh red habanero peppers, tomato, and select spices and seasonings. It is the perfect “all purpose” sauce. And the El Yucateco® Green Habanero Hot Sauce has fresh green habanero peppers, garlic, select spices and seasonings.

BBQ Pulled Pork

Now onto our pulled pork sandwiches!  Pork tenderloin is one of my favorite things to eat, and we’ve cooked it in our house, using a variety of methods and a variety of season.  The recipe and methods I’ll be sharing with you today are something we’ve just started working with in the past year, and the recipe has become an instant favorite with our family and guests!

Red Vinegar BBQ Sauce

As I mentioned earlier, the secret is in the sauce!  This red vinegar sauce serves as our marinade and a topper for the pulled pork sandwiches.   In this most recent batch, I used the El Yucateco® Red Chile Habanero sauce, but any of the El Yucateco® sauces would work in this recipe.

This pulled pork recipe also uses pork tenderlion.  I like tenderloins, because of their flavor and tenderness.  And I especially love them because they are less greasy and fatty than other cuts of meat.  But you could use this sauce recipe with Boston Butts or any other meats that you like.

Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches with Red Vinegar Sauce

Ingredients:

Pork Tenderloin (or other meat choice)

2 cup water

4 tablespoons salt

1 cup apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons El Yucateco® sauce

2 tablespoon black pepper

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoon garlic powder

2 tablespoon dry rub seasoning

2 tablespoon oregano

Directions:

To make your sauce, place all ingredients in a small sauce pan, and bring to boil on the stove, stirring frequently. Lower heat and continue to simmer for a couple of minutes. Then remove from heat. (This should be enough sauce for marinating and serving.)

Take your tenderloin or other meat and place it on a piece of heavy duty tin foil. Use a knife to poke holes in your meat, and pour some of the sauce over the meat. Wrap up meat with the rest of the tin foil, sealing it off tightly. Cook immediately or place in the refrigerator a couple of hours to marinade.

Cook times depend on the size of the meat you and the temperature you're cooking at. To cook hours, we have a grill with a smoker, and I recommend this for best results.

You should smoke the meat using hickory chips and try to cook it about 450 degrees. At this heat, it should take your roast 2-3 hours too cook. But you should also check it periodically to make sure it does not overcook, and you should use a thermometer or cut through the center to ensure your meat is cook all the way.

An alternative to grilling is baking this is in the oven. Here you should also wrap in the heavy duty foil before placing it on a cooking sheet or roast pan. And there we usually cook it at 350 degrees for about 2 hours or so.

After removing from grill or oven and checking that your meat is done, allow it to cool for a few minutes. Then begin pulling the meat apart. If it's good and done, it should easily fall apart. At this time you can douse your meat with a little bit of extra sauce for added flavor and moistness.

Then upon serving to your guests, bring the rest of your red vinegar barbecue sauce to the table. We serve our in a nice squeeze bottle, which is neat and convenient.

Now sit back and wait for your pulled pork to disappear! (And don't forget to dig in!)

Now as if the pulled pork wasn’t enough, we always like to serve it up with some great sides!  A basic side of chips and pickled spears or pickled okra (like I have in my pictures) are great for a quick family picnic (and when you don’t really feel like cooking a lot).

But other great sides we’ve enjoyed with our sandwiches include baked beans, potato salad, cole slaw, macaroni & cheese, and deviled eggs.

  17. How much pork do you use in this recipe?

    • Good question! I didn’t list the amount of pork that we use, because it only takes a little bit of the sauce to marinade the meat…essentially the recipe is enough for practically anything you’d make at home. Typically we use a 10 pound pork loin, and this is more than enough sauce to marinade, serve with sandwiches, and have left over sauce.
