Ingredients

  • 2 medium onions, cut into thin wedges
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 2 - 2 1/2 - pound boneless pork sirloin roast
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup bottled low-calorie barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 10 whole wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted

Directions

  1. In a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker, combine onions and the water; set aside. Trim fat from meat. If necessary, cut meat to fit into cooker. In a small bowl, combine chili powder, 1/4 teaspoon of the cumin, the pepper, and garlic powder. Sprinkle mixture evenly over meat; rub in with your fingers. Place meat in cooker.
  2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 9 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 4-1/2 hours.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, remove meat and onions from cooker. Using two forks, pull meat apart into shreds.
  4. In a large bowl, combine barbecue sauce, vinegar, honey, ginger, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon cumin. Add shredded meat; toss gently to coat. Fill each bun with about 1/3 cup of the meat mixture and about 1 tablespoon of the onions.

Make Ahead Tip

  • Prepare as directed. Store shredded meat mixture and onions in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 1 month. To serve, thaw overnight in the refrigerator. Transfer to a medium saucepan. Cook over low heat until heated through, stirring occasionally.
