Pulled Turkey Sandwiches

  • 1 (14 oz.) can lower-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (8 oz.) can no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sugar-free pancake syrup
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp mustard powder
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless turkey breast, cut into 4 or 5 pieces
  • 4 whole-wheat or whole-grain hamburger buns (optional)
Makes 4 Servings
  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the chicken broth, tomato sauce, vinegar, syrup, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, mustard powder and pepper flakes; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to low and add turkey; cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
  2. Using a slotted spoon, transfer turkey to a large bowl to cool for about 10 minutes. Continue cooking sauce, uncovered, untilreduced by half, 10 -15 minutes (you should have at least 1 cup). Remove from the heat and transfer 1/2 cup of the sauce to a small bowl, leaving remaining sauce in the pan.
  3. Using 2 forks, shred (pull) turkey. Return pulled turkey to the saucepan and stir to coat evenly with remaining sauce. Cook over low heat just to warm through, about 3 minutes. Divide turkey meat among buns, if using, and drizzle evenly with reserved sauce. Serve warm.
WW POINTS VALUE: 7 pts with bun, 5 pts without bun

Note: This recipe appears in the South Beach Diet Taste of Summer Cookbook. If you are ever having a barbeque, this is the dish to serve. I love  a good barbeque once in a while and this pulled barbeque was absolutely delicious. Pulled meats are very popular in the American South during the summer. Pulled meats are cooked slowly until they are juicy and tender enough to be easily pulled apart or sliced. This sauce was such a nice treat because it was so sweet and tangy and it melted right in your mouth. You can use this sauce with chicken, beef or pork and your meal will still be delicious. You won't miss the buns the pulled meat is that good. I highly recommend serving Savory Cheddar Cheese Biscuits and Citrusy Hot Pepper Slaw for  a yummy barbecue.
