Ingredients

  • 1 lb pork loin
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 cups chopped spinach
  • 18 whole wheat mini-burger buns, split

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425°.

Lightly coat a shallow skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Sear pork loin in skillet over medium-high heat, turning to brown all sides. Transfer to baking pan and cover with foil. Bake for 20 minutes, or until a meat thermometer inserted in the center registers 145°. As an alternative to baking in the oven, the pork loin can be cooked in a slow-cooker, on high, for 4 hours.

Allow pork loin to cool for 5 to 10 minutes. Using 2 forks, shred pork completely. In a large bowl, toss pork with BBQ sauce, coating evenly.

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant. Add spinach and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes, or until spinach is wilted.

Transfer pulled pork to buns and top with spinach. Serve hot.

Yield: 18 sliders
