Crockpot pulled pork

I love pulled pork. If I see it on a menu, I will usually make that my lunch or dinner. This is the easiest and most flavorful pulled pork recipe I’ve made. I got the recipe from a friend a few years back and tweaked it to my specifications.

Pulled pork’s been in the crockpot for about 5 hours.

Pork tenderloin, about 2-4 pounds
2 bottles of Zesty Italian dressing (I use Kraft)
2 bottles of BBQ sauce (I use the original Sweet Baby Ray’s)

Chop up the tenderloins into a couple of chunks each and throw them into the crockpot with the bottles of Italian dressing. Cook on high for 5-6 hours. When it’s done, strain out the dressing and shred the pork with two forks. Then mix with the BBQ sauce and eat.

Mix the pulled pork with your favorite BBQ sauce.

The dressing flavors the meat perfectly since it has all that seasoning. And it breaks down the meat quickly. Starting at about 4 hours, I start stirring it once in awhile. You’ll see the pork starting to fall apart too. You could always serve this with the BBQ sauce on the side. I love drowning the pork in BBQ sauce, but some people like their pulled pork less saucy. Eat it on a burger bun or kaiser roll or just by itself. You have plenty of options!


Also, I believe this can be used for pulled chicken. You’ll probably need to adjust the cooking time slightly and then use less dressing.
