Pork Tenderloin Sliders with Bourbon Peach BBQ Sauce are stacked high with tender pork, creamy slaw and tangy, sweet Peach BBQ Sauce that’s been spiked with bourbon.
This tender cut of pork is grilled to perfection. It makes a heavy appetizer for entertaining or hearty dinner.
Since the boys have been out of school and Lincoln loves to grill, he grills the protein for dinner while I get everything else ready. It’s a great system!
I picked up a Hormel ALWAYS TENDER® pork tenderloin in a mesquite barbecue flavor. The ALWAYS TENDER® products are available in pre-marinated pork tenderloins, pork loin filets & pork roasts in a variety of flavors. Plus, Hormel products are always quick, easy, affordable and tasty.
I wanted a quick meal and sandwiches are always my go-to for quick meals. Sandwiches are always welcome with my family, you can perk up any traditional sandwich with a special sauces. And, pork is so versatile and adapts easily different flavor profiles and worked beautifully with the Peach BBQ sauce I had been wanting to try. Who knew you could pack so many flavors into one sandwich?
Pork Tenderloin Sliders with Bourbon Peach BBQ Sauce
Bourbon Peach BBQ Sauce is the perfect the perfect match for pork. It’s tangy, sweet and slightly smoky from the bourbon. Don’t worry the alcohol cooks out of the bourbon leaving just the flavor.
I also added a traditional coleslaw to our sandwiches. I love the crunch coleslaw adds. It takes about one half a head of cabbage for 4 cups.
