1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Mix 1 tablespoon of the brown sugar, the paprika, 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, the cumin, and chili powder in a small cup. Place the pork on a piece of wax paper. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the pork, patting the meat to help the spices adhere.
2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Swirl in the oil, and then add the pork. Cook, turning occasionally, until well browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer the pork to a shallow roasting pan. Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of meat registers 160°F, about 15 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, combine the remaining 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon each pepper and salt, the vinegar, water, ketchup, onion, garlic, and crushed red pepper in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat slightly and boil until reduced to 3/4 cup, about 15 minutes.
4. Thinly slice the pork. Toss the pork and 3/4 cup of the sauce in a large bowl. Serve on the rolls with the remaining sauce on the side.
