Tropical Barbecued Pulled Pork

June 21, 2013

Mango barbecued pulled pork from My Tasty Handbook  is a tropical twist on an American classic.  Tender pieces of pork are tossed in a homemade mango barbecue sauce that's spicy, fruity and absolutely delicious.  If you are not a fan of mango, you can substitute with peach or papaya instead.  Serve the mango pulled pork in a sweet roll with a slaw salad and sweet potato fries.
