Okay, if you haven’t tried this classic slow cooker recipe…it’s darn well time.

I recommend using a pork tenderloin because it’s so lean. It will be a little more difficult to shred because of this, but it’s worth it to save on fat calories. Choose a low sugar barbecue sauce (less than 6 grams per serving is a good goal) and put it on the side to keep portions small. Dip your fork in the sauce for each bite instead of smothering. Yes, I know it’s better that way. There’s no argument there!

  1. Okay, I’m going to put this on tonight and let it cook all night and have it for lunch and dinner for the next few days. Sounds great! I made your little egg muffins too and those are a great, easy fast breakfast when you live a busy lifestyle like myself.

  2. Should I put the onion in when I put the broth and sauce in or is it just to put on the side? Sorry, I require specific instructions :/ Like “use pot holder to remove pan from oven” LOL

  3. Cool! That’s what I did this morning :) It’s at the house slow cooking as we type…..I can’t wait to get home and try it :D

  4. Now I know what’s for dinner on Thursday. For those that are gluten free like myself Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce is gluten free.
