Naked Rootbeer Pulled Pork – Seems appropriate since Dr. Willey is the author of What Would Your Doctor Look Like Naked?
The reason I call it “naked” is because it’s not served on a bun. You can put it on top of a salad and go low-carb!
1 (2 pound) pork tenderloin
1 can of root beer
1 (18 oz) bottle of BBQ sauce, I used Gate’s Original Flavor
Place the pork tenderloin in a slow cooker and pour a can of root beer and a bottle of BBQ sauce over the meat. Cover and cook on low heat for 6 hours or until pork shreds easily with a fork.
After pork has cooked *shred the pork and place it back in the slow cooker. Serve immediately or keep warm in slow cooker until ready to serve.
*I like to shred the pork using a KitchenAid mixer with a strong flat beater attachment. Works like a charm!
