You all know that I absolutely LOVE super easy recipes and this one does not disappoint! I don’t think it can get any easier than this. Plus, it uses my favorite thing ever – pork tenderloin. As we start back to school and the temperatures start to drop back to normal levels and head towards Fall, it’s definitely time to bring out the crockpot and start making all my super easy favorites!
This recipe easily doubles and I fixed a double batch this time so that I had enough to freeze for additional meals later on. Start with placing one or two pork tenderloins in a crockpot with minced garlic and diced up sweet onion.
Then you want to cover the pork tenderloin with the bbq sauce of your choice. Since I was using all organic/natural products, including the pork tenderloin, I picked a great sauce that is carried by our local grocery store Kroger from their Simple Truth Organic line.
Cover the pork tenderloin with the BBQ sauce, and then cook on low for 6-7 hours until the internal temperature of the meat is at least 160˚ and it shreds easily with two forks.
Once the pork is cooked, you can remove it to shred with a fork. You can then serve with or without a bun. I prefer my pork a little bit saucier so I put my shredded pork into a small saucepan with some additional BBQ sauce and warm on very low heat.
