Crockpot Pulled Pork Sandwiches {Recipe Remake}

When I first started blogging in the fall of 2011, I had a terrible point and shoot camera, and a kitchen with absolutely no natural light. While I still have a kitchen with absolutely no natural light (Dear Future House, If you could help me out with this issue, that would be awesome!), I do have a much better camera and a continued love for a delicious pulled pork sandwich, so I decided to remake these pulled pork sandwiches from three years ago. This version is still super easy - there's only 3 ingredients! - and is sure to be a crowd pleaser.

To make the dish, you will need pork tenderloin (which tend to come in packages of 2), 16 oz. root beer and barbecue sauce (8-16oz). 

Place the pork tenderloin into your crockpot, and then pour the root beer over it. 

Cook on high for 3 hours (or on low for 6 hours and 15 minutes). When cooked, remove from the crockpot and shred the tenderloin using two forks.

Keeping the crockpot on the warm setting, return the shredded pork to the crockpot as you shred it.

Once you have fully shredded the tenderloin and returned it to the crockpot, add in the barbecue sauce and cook on low for additional 25 minutes.

When it's all done, serve it on warm buns with extra barbecue sauce or mayonnaise, and enjoy with coleslaw (I put some on my sandwich) or a summer salad. If you'd prefer to be a little healthier, you could definitely make these in whole wheat or lettuce wraps! This makes 6-8 sandwiches, depending on how loaded each sandwich is - and leftovers are great to add to salads or to baked potatoes for a quick and easy lunch!
