Pork and Mango, a Sandwich for Success

Peter Island Resort on Peter Island in the British Virgin Islands is on many people's list - along with Conde Nast Traveler - as one of the best places in the world to stay.

It's also a very good place to eat, thanks in part to Executive Chef Lisa Sellers.

Here's her recipe for pulled pork which she pairs with grilled mango for a memorable sandwich.

Peter Island Pulled Pork for Pork and Grilled Mango Sandwich

1 Pork butt
2 1/2 TBS paprika
2 TBS salt
2 TBS garlic powder
2 TBS black pepper
1 TBS onion powder
1 TBS cayenne powder
1 TBS dried oregano
1 TBS Thyme
1 TBS basil

Combine all ingredients and rub onto the pork butt. Place it fat side up on a roasting rack in a pan and cover with aluminum foil.

Bake in a 325-degree oven for 3-4 hours. Remove the foil and bake for another hour until pork is tender and pulls away easily with a fork.

Serve with grilled mango slices alone or as a sandwich.

By all means pair with bubbly the way they do on Peter Island.
