Slower Cooker Pulled Pork

I've been looking for a good excuse to use my new crockpot and I found a recipe for pulled pork which sounded fairly simple and looked pretty good and those are my two basic requirements for cooking. The barbeque sauce that I chose was Sweet Baby Rays. I stuck to the recipe besides a few minor things. I seasoned the pork with onion powder and salt and pepper but those were my only changes. Next time I think I'll brown the outside of the meat before I stick it in the crockpot. I doubled the recipe, so I had a ton left over, but it's even better heated up and I think it will freeze fairly well. I definitely plan on making this again

You'll notice a lot of my recipes are excuses to use new wedding presents. You'll also notice my new dinnerware I got to serve it on. I like showing off my new toys.

8 servings

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

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.
