This tender and juicy pulled pork starts with a surprising choice: pork tenderloin. By simmering large pieces of pork tenderloin in a tangy sauce and then shredding it with two forks the result is tender pork tossed with lots of rich flavorful sauce. The final touch is a crunchy broccoli slaw with a mustardy dressing.

Watch how to make this recipe.

In a large Dutch oven, heat 2 teaspoons of the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion and season with salt and pepper. Cook until softened and lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the chili powder, cumin, cinnamon and cayenne and cook until toasted, 1 minute more. Stir in the chicken broth, ketchup, molasses and 1/3 cup of the vinegar. Bring to a simmer and add the pork. Simmer, covered, until the pork is just cooked through and tender, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk the mustard with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and 1 tablespoon vinegar in a large bowl. Add the broccoli slaw and toss well. Season with salt and pepper and set aside. 

Remove the pork to a cutting board and let stand for 5 minutes. Increase the heat under the Dutch oven to medium high and cook the sauce until thickened, about 5 minutes. 

Shred the pork with 2 forks into large chunks and return to the thickened sauce. Toss well to coat and simmer 10 minutes, tossing occasionally, to let the pork absorb the sauce. Serve on the buns with the slaw on the sandwiches or on the side.
