So, after you made the Crock Pot Pulled Pork with Apples, Onions, and Peppers Stew, what do you do with the leftovers? Drain the liquid and make sandwiches!! I’m all about making a meal with the thought that I can squeeze two dinners out of it. I mean, really what sounds better to a busy mom than that?? Well, besides relaxing on the couch with a glass of wine? And that is exactly what you can do instead of fussing over your second meal-WIN!!Ingredients
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 🙂
Pork Loin (amount depends on how many people you have to feed)
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!
