BBQ Pulled Pork

I knew it was going to be a long day, and I wouldn’t have any energy left for cooking dinner. Little did I know it was also going to be a crummy day, so I was doubly glad to come home to the smell of dinner bubbling away in the slow cooker. Less than 15 minutes of morning prep (and that included stopping to take photos), and less than 5 minutes just prior to serving, and there was my comfort food dinner. 

Ahhh, comfort food. And all the better for being so easy to prepare! This recipe uses pork tenderloins, a leaner cut than is traditionally used. The onion, sauce, & slow cooker keep the meat really moist, and it just falls apart when it’s done. I use  Sonny’s Sizzlin’ BBQ Sauce. It’s well worth the shipping charges to order it online, especially since they’ve recently started charging less to ship. Maybe some day we’ll get lucky & they’ll open a store up here!

You’ll find a printer-friendly version of the recipe at the bottom of this page.

3.) Pour the bbq sauce over all. Aim to cover most of the pork, but don’t overthink it.

4.) Cook on low for 7-9 hours. Just before serving shred the pork with 2 forks.
