Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

You must make this just for the simple fact of using only 3 ingredients!

I put the pork on buns, but feel free to serve in whatever way your heart desires. It freezes great too!


Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

1 (2 lb) pork tenderloin
1 can or bottle of root beer
1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce

Place the pork in the crock pot; pour root beer over the pork. Cover and cook on LOW for 6-7 hours or until well cooked and shreds easily.

Drain well. Shred meat; stir in BBQ sauce.


Updated 6/22/11: I recently made this with a pork butt (which is actually a pork shoulder). This is SO much better using the shoulder than a tenderloin. You will have to remove the bone, but it is only one and it's pretty large. The meat is so much more flavorful and tender...also, pork butts are much cheaper than tenderloins! :)

I make this too, but use coke instead of root beer. It is sooo tasty and always a hit!!

Cooked this yesterday, used the Root Beer, cooking it in my Cuisinart Electric Pressure cooker. It was wonderful, thanks for the recipe.
