Pulled Pork

I have to admit that I’m not super organized about my dinner schedule for the week. Most of the time, I just buy whatever is on sale at the grocery store and then figure out how to use up those ingredients. This week, Meijer had their pork tenderloin on sale. I bought a small one and decided to try a pulled pork. I also didn’t want to put too much effort into this recipe since the weather is just now warming up, so I used my crock pot.


  • 1 (2 pound) pork tenderloin
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle root beer
  • 1 (18 ounce) bottle your favorite barbecue sauce
  • 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.
This turned out great, and was super easy with the crock pot!
