Balsamic BBQ- pulled pork sandwiches

November 20, 2009

Edit August 11, 2010: {Thanks for all those who voted for me in the Udi’s/Gluten-Freeville recipe contest. This recipe won 1st place!}

I’m not sure why I don’t use my slow cooker more often. It is so incredibly easy! You just gather want you want to cook, throw it in the pot and let it simmer away for hours on end. In the mean time, spreading the glorious smell of food around your house.

Before I was gluten-free I used to adore going to Jim Bob’s BBQ off 71 and Bee Cave. They had the best chopped beef BBQ sandwiches that were HUGE and full of great flavor. When Jim Bob’s closed down, I was devastated. No more wonderful chopped beef sandwiches. I decided to come up with a recipe that would be similar in taste yet be gluten-free and healthy. I have come up with this, I hope you enjoy meaty sandwiches because this one is a killer (and super easy to make! )


Crock Pot!

3 lbs. pork tenderloin, this will feed an army

1/2-1 bottle of gluten-free BBQ sauce

salt and pepper


3 tablespoons garlic powder

1 softball size onion

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1/2 box vegetable stock


Heavily season the pork tenderloin on both sides with garlic powder, salt and pepper

Place in slow cooker

Coat the meat with oil, about 2 tablespoons

Top with sliced onions

Pour 1/2 a box of vegetable stock over the tenderloin, the meat should be slightly covered with liquid

Cook on low for 6 hours

Drain vegetable stock

Shred the pork tenderloin with forks, it should easily fall apart

Pour in balsamic vinegar and 1/2 bottle of BBQ sauce, you are welcome to use more.

Serve with Udi’s gluten-free bread, toasted

      Hi Maureen, I either use homemade BBQ sauce or Stubb’s gluten-free barbecue sauce, any flavor. Hope this helps!
