Yummy! I made this using pork tenderloin since it's a little leaner. It was so good that we're definitely adding it to the frequently made meals list.

Thanks for the recipe, Val. I've been cooking this one for awhile-just getting around to rating it. Wonderful and easy. I follow the recipe exactly, except that I add enough water to almost completely cover the pork while cooking. The pork just falls apart when done-so easy to shred. I also use low carb bbq sauce w/splenda--I don't need to worry at allabout burning. Serve on buns with french fries on the side--DH & kids LOVE!Great to come home to after a long day at work. Nice leftovers for sandwiches. Thanks again Val.
