Hand Shredded Pork

I have to admit, I love pulled pork.  One of my husband’s favorite restaurants is Smokey Bones.  Every time we go, we both get the pulled pork platter.  I always say I’m going to try something else, but it never fails, I end up getting the same thing.  When I was looking through my cookbook last week finding meals to cook on our vacation, I came across a slow cooker pork recipe.   I pulled it out and then left it on the counter.  I did bring my crock pot and bought two boneless pork tenderloins.  I had to make due with what I could find in a kitchen not my own, but this recipe turned out awesome!  I would recommend this to anyone that likes pulled pork.  It was easy and made enough for at least 8 people.  I should have only made one of the tenderloins, but ended up making both and freezing what was left over.  Even my 9-year old loved it.  We ate it as the main dish, but you could also put this on fresh buns and eat as a sandwich.  Yummy!  Try this soon, I promise you will love it!

Hand Shredded Pork:

2 boneless pork tenderloins, trimmed of fat

1 cup water

1 full bottle of bbq sauce (whatever you like)

salt/pepper (just throw some in)

1 T. paprika

1 T. crushed red pepper flakes

1 t. garlic salt

1 t. garlic pepper

mix all but the tenderloin in the crock pot.  add the tenderloin, covering with the sauce mix.  cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours, or until pork is very tender.  remove tenderloin from the crock pot and place in a large bowl.  take 2 forks and shred pork.  pour about 3 cups of the remaining sauce over the shredded pork.  serve with additional bottle of bbq sauce.  enjoy!
