Pulled pork sandwiches are one of my favorite things in the world and I made this recipe to sort of capture the taste with less time and work! Goes excellent with a nice crisp coleslaw!

  • Spread butter on soft rolls. Heap tuna mixture onto the rolls and serve.

Cook's Note:

You can alter the amount of onions and garlic to suit your taste. I usually put more than I have written because I love them both! Also you can add sliced bell peppers to the mix. The buns can be simply warm and buttered or, you can grill them and add cheese, basically assemble the sandwich the way you enjoy pulled pork sandwiches.

Instead of sauteing the onion and garlic in water, I sauteed it in butter. I used Baby Ray's barbeque sauce in this recipe. I topped each helping of barbeque tuna with a slice of sharp cheddar cheese. I was seriously taking a big chance on this recipe because I wasn't sure that my family would like this......but they did. They ate every bit of it. Great quick lunch. Read More

I was so worried that the BBQ would taste fishy and no one would like it but the fam didn't even notice it was tuna. Taste and texture were awesome and took so little time to make... I've got a new favorite tuna recipe!!! Read More

I made this recipe it was delicious. I added cheese and put it in the broiler for about a minute and a half. All of the flavors combined was orgasmic. We will make this again at my home. Read More

This was perfect! I've been pescatarian (only eat fish) for quite some time now and I certainly missed barbecue pork! Now not only is this recipe simple and good for those on a budget but it tastes wonderful. However I used minced garlic from a jar and onion powder. I also added some mustard powder and chili powder for more kick. Baby Ray's sauce works best since is had sweetness to it. There was no fish taste at all either! Phenomenal recipe - Thank you!

definitely a lot better then it sounds at first. like some of the other reviews I used a little bit of butter and added some oil so the onions would just saute and not brown. definitely will try this again. Read More

Soo good! Never would have thought of this on my own. I don't eat "meat" (pork beef chicken) so this is a yummy alternative & you can't even really tell it's not pork! For a "healthier" version I substituted a bed of spinach for the rolls and it was delish. Read More
