slow cooker pulled pork – townie


shoprite had pork loin on sale – when its on sale i buy it and cut it into 3 pieces each about 2-3lbs depending on how big it is.  we had a birthday party to go to yesterday late afternoon so i figured it would be good to have something ready when we got home.    we were kind of skeptical when we saw what the pork looked like after cooking on low for 8 hours… it had shrunk and looked like it was gonna be super dry!   after shredding the pork and adding the barbecue sauce the pork was delicious!!!  the recipe originally called for root beer which i didn’t have, so i used a can of coke instead.  Cole slaw would have been REALLY good with this, alas we didn’t have any. a pickle made an ok substitute



Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

adapted from allrecipes



  • 1 (2 pound) pork tenderloin  (i used pork loin)
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle root beer  (i used a can of coke)
  • 1 (18 ounce) bottle your favorite barbecue sauce (i used a bottle of sweet baby ray’s)
  • 8 hamburger buns, split and lightly toasted


  1. Place the pork tenderloin in a slow cooker; pour the root beer over the meat. Cover and cook on low until well cooked and the pork shreds easily, 6 to 7 hours. Note: the actual length of time may vary according to individual slow cooker. Drain well. Stir in barbecue sauce. Serve over hamburger buns.
