Ingredients

  • 3 pork tenderloins (1 pound each)
  • 1-3/4 cups reduced-fat sesame ginger salad dressing, divided
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • SLAW:
  • 1 package (14 ounces) coleslaw mix
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat sesame ginger salad dressing
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • TO SERVE:
  • 12 multigrain hamburger buns, split
  • Wasabi mayonnaise, optional

Directions

  1. Place tenderloins in a 5-qt. slow cooker coated with cooking spray; pour 3/4 cup salad dressing over pork, turning to coat. Cook, covered, on low until meat is tender, 4-5 hours.
  2. Remove pork; cool slightly. Shred meat into bite-sized pieces; return to slow cooker. Stir in brown sugar and remaining salad dressing. Cook, covered, until heated through, 30-45 minutes longer.
  3. Combine slaw ingredients. Serve pork on buns with slaw and, if desired, mayonnaise.
