Quick Guava BBQ Sandwiches




10 min


10 min


shredded pork or chicken 2 cups
BBQ Sauce 1 cup
guava jelly 1 cup
King's Hawaiian Rolls 1 package of minis or 4 hamburger buns
diced mango 1/2 cup
diced pineapple 1/2 cup
diced red onion 1/4 cup
diced jalapeno 1/2 to 1 whole depending on how spicy you like it.

Quick Guava BBQ Sandwiches are super easy and delicious. They taste like a tropical vacation on a plate.

  1. Combine your shredded meat, BBQ sauce, and guava jelly in a sauce pan.
  2. Place over medium heat.
  3. Stir every few minutes until all of the ingredients combine and the mixture is hot. Keep in mind if your meat is partially frozen it will take a bit longer to heat up.
  4. While the meat is cooking, prep your salsa.
  5. Place the mango, pineapple, onion, and jalapeno into a bowl. Stir to combine.
  6. Toast your buns if desired.
  7. When everything is ready, place your meat on the bottom buns and the salsa on top of the meat. Top with the other half of the bun.  
  8. Enjoy!



*You can use the small King’s Hawaiian Rolls or the hamburger buns. These rolls have a subtle sweetness that makes these sandwiches even more yummy.

*These sandwiches are great on their own, but the salsa makes them more special.

*Any BBQ sauce works as long as it isn’t super smoky. This is just the one I had in the refrigerator.

*Rotisserie chicken works great in this! Pulled pork is fine too. I like to get my meat on sale at the grocery store and I just cook it right away in the crock-pot with salt and pepper. Then I package it using a few cups per container. That way I always have meat on hand when I need dinner in a flash.

*Thaw frozen meat quickly by soaking the container in a bowl of cool water. If it’s a little frozen when it goes into the sauce, just cook it a few more minutes until it’s hot.

*Thawed frozen mango and pineapple work great if you don’t have fresh. I’ve used canned pineapple in a pinch too.
