Pulled Pork Sandwiches | Slowcooker does 90% of the work-win!

This recipe is in no way original (nor is it Paleo-sorry!), but it’s SO easy and good that I had to share.  The best part?  You take about 10 minutes to get it going in the morning/afternoon, your house smells delicious all day, and then you take about 10 minutes and it’s ready for dinner.  LOVE THAT!

Added bonus-Teenage sons and toddler girl approved 🙂blog Pulled Pork Sandwich


  • Pork Loin (amount depends on how many people you have to feed)
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Can of coke (or any regular sugared soft drink-most of it gets poured out after!)
  • 2-3 shredded carrots (I cheat and buy the shredded bags from Trader Joe’s :))
  • Jar of your favorite BBQ sauce


  • Chop onion and place in your slowcooker/crockpot
  • Place the Pork tenderloin on top of the onions
  • Pour the Coke/whatever soft drink you use over the top until it almost covers it.
  • Cook on low for 6+ hours (it won’t get dried out)
  • About an hour before it’s done (or less), add the shredded carrots (you don’t need the carrots.  I just added these the last time I made them for some extra veggies.)
  • When it’s done cooking, drain all but about 1 cup of the liquid.  Shred the pork and add BBQ sauce.

Serve on your favorite bun (we did ciabatta this last time), or serve on a salad for a low carb option!
