Mango Barbecue Sauce:
1 mango, peeled, pitted and mashed
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 1/2 c. bottled barbeque sauce
1/4 c. lime juice
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
hot pepper sauce (optional)

Pulled Pork:
2 tsp. ground cumin
2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. dried oregano
3 lb. boneless pork loin, cut into 2-in. chunks
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil, divided
1 large yellow onion, chopped
1 mango, peeled, pitted and mashed

Additional Ingredients:
8 soft rolls

1. Prepare the sauce by stirring together all sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 30 min.

2. For the pork, stir together spices in a medium bowl; add pork and toss until coated. Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in a Dutch oven or stock pot. Add pork and cook until browned on all sides (in batches if pot is narrow). Remove from pot.

3. Heat remaining oil and add onion; cook and stir over medium-high heat for 5 min. to brown. Add pork back to pot with mango and 1 1/2 c. mango barbecue sauce (reserve extra sauce for serving); cover and cook over low heat for 2 1/2 hrs. or until meat shreds easily with a fork.

4. Serve shredded pork on rolls with a drizzle of barbecue sauce. Great with a spoonful of Sweet Mango Slaw on top or served on the side.
