Sometimes the best things take a little time, and this recipe is one of them! The rub for this pulled pork dinner is packed with flavor and is absolutely divine. For this dish, we recommend a low-sugar barbecue sauce like Stubb’s® Original All-Natural Bar-B-Q Sauce. You can serve this pulled pork piled up on a whole-wheat bun, or make it “open faced” and pile our Skinny Coleslaw recipe on top. Or, skip the bun and serve with Whole-Wheat Cornbread Muffins.
Serve our Skinny Country Green Beans alongside this classic BBQ recipe.
Pro tip: The best shredding meat is pork shoulder, but we used a pork loin because it’s lower in fat. The loin is tender, however, so it will still shred, just maybe not as easily as a pork shoulder would!
We want to make sure our recipes are juuust right before we share them with our readers, so we have reworked an older version of this recipe into a new and improved creation! This recipe is skinnier, tastier and better than ever thanks to a tiny bit of tweaking, and we know you’ll love it.
