BBQ Pulled Pork

I've been wanting to try a crockpot recipe but too scared to do it while I was at work. Sunday was the perfect day to try since we were home all day. I found this recipe on the Big City Cooking blog. As I was cooking, I wasn't able to smell anything, so I was nervous that I did it wrong. The recipe came out great, though! 

taken from Big City Cooking


2 lb pork tenderloin
12 oz can of Dr. Pepper
18 oz bottle of BBQ Sauce
8 hamburger buns


Poke holes in the tenderloin with a fork and season with salt and pepper. Place the pork in a slow cooker and pour the Dr. Pepper over it. Cover and cook on low for 7 hours or until well cooked and pork shreds easily.  Drain well. Shred the chicken with two forks. Stir in BBQ sauce. Serve on hamburger buns. 

Servings: Makes 8-10 sandwiches


1. We like stuff spicy so i seasoned the pork with some cayenne, and garlic and onion powder.
2. My pork loin was slightly bigger, so we used extra BBQ sauce and extra Dr. Pepper.


This recipe was so easy and so good, I almost didn't believe it! The pork came out so juicy and tender, I didn't think I was the one who made it. I will definitely be making this again.
