BBQ Pulled Pork – Pork Tenderloin

I have a couple of pulled pork recipes you can look at Slow Cooker Italian Pulled Porkand Cajun Pulled Pork which are both popular at our house.

During the summer months we move up to our lake house and it is when I clean out my refrigerator and freezer. I found a 5 pound pork loin tenderloin and brought it to the lake and decided to use it. I wanted something easy so we can enjoy the lake but serve a fabulous dinner!

I always use pork shoulder and was nervous but went for it. This is what I did and everyone enjoyed.. It was so good. I even made a coleslaw with only 4 ingredients! check it out…
