COOK TIME
4 Hr 15 Min

Who would've thought that with just 4 ingredients you can make the tastiest shredded pork ever, and right in your slow cooker, too! Our Down-Home Shredded Pork gets it's special flavor from a combination of BBQ sauce and root beer, and when ya slow cook it for hours (like we do) you can bet those flavors are really going to come through.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (2-pound) package pork tenderloin, trimmed, rinsed, and patted dry (2 per package)
  • 1 cup root beer
  • 1/2 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/4 cups barbecue sauce
What To Do:
  1. Coat a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Over medium-high heat, brown both tenderloins on all sides.
     
  2. Pour root beer into a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. Add pork and onion, and pour barbecue sauce on top.
     
  3. Cook on LOW 4 to 6 hours, or until pork easily breaks apart. Using 2 forks, shred pork in slow cooker, mixing with sauce. 
     
Notes
  • Serve on Bibb lettuce with shredded carrots and scallions to make a tasty lettuce wrap.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I love this easy way to cook pork in my slow cooker. We have used this recipe with root beer and Dr. Pepper. Thank you, other reviewers, for giving options on other cuts of meat. I do not know one cut of meat from another, so any advice I get is really appreciated!

pork shoulder is another good alternative.

Pork tenderloin is too expensive to use for pulled pork. Boneless pork loin, frequently $1.99/lb in my area, is a much better choice. Remove any fat and cut it to fit in your crockpot.

can this recipe be doubled?

Hi there! Yes, this recipe can be doubled. Enjoy!
