One of the best tailgate foods and biggest Southern traditions is pork barbecue. Whether you are tailgating or just having a backyard get together with the family, BBQ is always a hit. So, the next time you get together for great food, whether it is for football or just for fun, try this 3-Step Lean Pork BBQ Recipe. The only difference with this 3-Step Lean Pork BBQ Recipe is that it is made with Pork Tenderloin, which is the leanest cut of pork.
1 package Pork Tenderloin (contains 2 pieces of meat)
BBQ Sauce (of your choice)
1 tsp Almond Oil
The night before you want to serve your 3-Step Lean Pork BBQ, marinate the pork in a little of your BBQ sauce. You just want to use a little sauce; too much may cause your meat to taste too salty.
On the morning of your big event, sear the marinated pork in a large skillet using 1 tsp of almond oil. The key to making this small amount of oil work is to use a high heat. Once the oil has heated, move the pan around to coat the entire thing. Reduce the heat to medium or med-high once the pan has been coated.
Place the seared pork in a large Crock Pot and add one ladle (soup serving spoon) full of BBQ sauce in with it. Cook on high for 30 minutes to 1 hour and then reduce to low or keep warm and let the meat simmer for at least 4 hours.
Place your BBQ sauce in plastic squeeze bottles and place on the table for your guests to season their pork as desired.
There you have it, a simple 3-Step Lean Pork BBQ Recipe for your next get-together. By using Pork Tenderloin you are making a healthy swap that is still full of flavor. Also, try to avoid a sodium heavy BBQ sauce by checking your local grocery stores for an all-natural BBQ sauce.
This 3-Step Lean Pork BBQ Recipe is bound to be a hit at your next gathering. Your guests won’t believe it’s not your local BBQ restaurant’s catering service unless they watch you make it!
