Slow Cooker Pulled Pork June 17, 2009

OK, I know I’ve said a lot of meals that I’ve made were easy, but I really think this one takes the cake. 

  • Toss a pork tenderloin in the crock pot
  • Pour a bottle of root beer over it
  • Cook for 6-7 hours
  • Remove pork, pour in a bottle of BBQ sauce
  • Pull pork apart, put back in crock pot and cook for another 20-30 minutes.

Seriously, that is all.  All I did this morning before I left was toss meat in the pot and pour root beer over it.  And dinner was pretty much ready when I got home!  And it tasted soooooooo good.  Ross can’t stand root beer, so I thought about lying to him about it, but I was nice and told him.  He still loved it.  It was the perfect combination of sweet and tangy, and a nice mix between a thin, vinegar sauce and a thick BBQ sauce.  I am sure you could use any cut of pork and not just a tenderloin, but they were on sale so that is what I bought.  The recipe, shockingly, is from

We had this with some cole slaw that I wanted to love but I didn’t.  It was a Sandra Lee recipe, a combination of slaw mix, mayo, sour cream, lime juice and hot sauce.  It was way too lime-y and didn’t taste really like slaw to me.  I think I’ll search for a new recipe for next time.  We had some fries and baked beans, too.  A great meal all in all!
