When Lt. Dan and I first started dating, we were in college and both waited tables at popular restaurants. He happened to work at a barbecue joint down the street from our school that made the most amazing ribs and pulled pork.

I always looked forward to meeting up after work, for a few reasons.

One, he was (is) pretty cute.

Two, he would be saturated by the intoxicating aroma of “man” and “smoky meat” (They should bottle that scent.)

Three, he would sometimes bring me a pulled pork sandwich.

Now we could ponder the complexities of romance and compatibility for hours, but I’m fairly certain his meaty perfume and pulled pork presents were the reasons I fell in love with him.

Thankfully we were compatible as well.

Pulled pork is one of my favorite dishes. It’s so versatile on sandwiches, in tacos, on salad, or simply piled high next to an ear of fresh buttered corn.

Today I’m sharing Lori Lange’s recipe for Sweet Chili Pulled Pork from her fabulous new book The Recipe Girl Cookbook, named after her popular recipe blog RecipeGirl.com.

Lori’s easy pulled pork recipe is genius!

Instead of slow cooking pork butt for hours, she suggests poaching pork tenderloin in beer and vinegar for 1 hour, then shredding it and adding Thai Sweet Chili Sauce.

The results were astounding. This pulled pork tenderloin is tender and juicy with a spicy-sweet punch of Asian flavors.

I will definitely being making Lori’s Sweet Chili Pulled Pork again. Very soon!

    My favorite way to eat pulled pork is on a toasted bun and topped with homemade coleslaw and cilantro. A close runner up is over a bed of pasta, topped with cheddar cheese and thinly diced red onions.

    On a bun – better version of a sloppy Joe. Though nearly as sloppy…

    In the event you have the shoe size and elegance right, you’re ready to take into consideration padding.
