Aarti Paarti

Pulled Pork with Mango BBQ Sauce + Apple Peanut Slaw Salad + Sweet Roasted Yam Fries

mango pulled pork sandwich

I invited my Mom for dinner over two weekends ago and decided to make Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Mango BBQ Sauce.  The reason I picked out this dish was because we both saw it  air on Aarti Paarti and were salivating over how good the pulled pork was.   I thought it would be fun to surprise her with my version.

If you love mangoes, then you will love these sandwiches so much!  I also decided to make her Apple Peanut  Slaw, then decided to add in carbs with some serving of roasted sweet yam fries.

During dinner we were just in love with our food.  We just kept wanting more… I thought the Apple slaw and the Yams complimented perfectly with the mango flavored slow cooked pork.  It definitely was the highlight of our Sunday.

Please note that I have made some changes to accommodate my access to the called out ingredients from the original recipe and my taste preferences… but overall I have stayed pretty true to the original recipe.

    I do love mango. This is such a great twist on the classic pulled pork BBQ sandwich–which is my favorite BBQ thing to have! The apple and peanut slaw sounds really good too. Love that combo!

    I have never tried pork with mango sauce, but it must be great!! Lucky to have shared this with your Mom!!!

    This is an incredibly tasting recipe; I have not seen mango nectar made into a BBQ sauce so I am really intrigued here; the side dishes look and sound wonderful and a perfect, much tastier alternative to french fries and coleslaw smothered in mayo!
    As far as the bread rings, there are sweet and savory versions; I have tried both and have posted both although the sweet is flavored with both anise seeds and ground anise and I used olive oil. In any case, I am eager to try your mom in -law ‘s version, which I am sure is yummy and traditional (they make them in sticks too).

    Thanks Joumana! I will be sharing some recipes with you. I did get my mom’s version…which is the savory version. It’s pretty close to your post. I will be sharing it with you. I will also try getting the sweeter version as well.

    YUM! This sounds like something I must try!

    Just the title alone was enough to bring me here! I do indeed love mangoes and I am certain that this will be well received in our household. Thank you so much! I’m actually really excited to read this!

    This whole dinner sounds amazing! I love pulled pork and I bet that mango bbq sauce was delicious!

    Lucky mom! I have been planning to make pulled pork for some time now. Tracking down Boston Butt or pork shoulder will be the biggest challenge – one my butcher has been set. The mango sounds like something that would be really, really delicious with it.

    I can’t tell you how big a hit these dishes will be at my house. Thanks!

    I LOVE pulled pork. No really, I beyond love it, and I love that you did homemade BBQ sauce and the slaw looks so good. I’m hungry!

  • http://www.mytastyhandbook.com Adelina Badalyan

    Thanks for the sweet comments. My mom is not as lucky as I am. The truth is ever since my kids started school, she’s been in charge of picking them up and providing them food almost every day. I felt like this is the least I can do…

    Awesome! This is my kind of meal–hearty and flavor-packed!

    I absolutely love pulled pork sandwich, and mango BBQ sauce sounds divine. Loved the sweet potato fries idea too.

    Wow. Okay, I smoke my own barbecue pretty frequently, and this is on the rotation. Typically I’ll do brisket, but on your recommendation, I’ve got absolutely no problem spending a day on a pork shoulder. Assuming, of course, you think smoking it would add to the dish?

  • http://www.mytastyhandbook.com Adelina Badalyan

    I don’t think smoking is required since I think it’s already really good with just slow cooking the meet… I am a big fan of smoke bbq, so the extra added effort might work to your advantage.
