Patriotic Pulled Pork

No, this recipe is not for red, white, and blue pork, but it is a lightened up version of an American classic in honor of July 4th, and it couldn't be easier to make- Yep, it's pulled pork!

All you'll need is:
1 Package of Pork Tenderloin
A combination of whatever veggies you might like in your crockpot
1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce
Tin Foil or a bunch of potatoes to prop your pork up on
A Crockpot

To prepare your pork simply insert balls of tin foil or lots of potatoes into the bottom of your crockpot to prop it up, place your pork and veggies on top, and cook on low for 7-8 hours or until the pork is easily shreddable using 2 forks. Traditionally, pulled pork is made with pork shoulder, a much fattier cut of meat, which is why this is a much healthier version, since pork tenderloin is a much leaner cut of meat. Once the pork is done cooking, transfer it into a bowl and shred away and then add as much BBQ sauce as you desire! Or you can pour the BBQ sauce over the pork initially and let the pork cook in the sauce for the 7-8 hours, but it is a little healthier to add the sauce after so you can add less.

Yep, it's that easy! And totally delicious! (And FYI the pictured pork is prior to adding sauce!) Pin It
