In this recipe a pork tenderloin is used as a leaner alternative to pork butt to make that same, delicious pulled pork we all love.

This was great, and so easy! The meat came out juicy and tender and was very flavorful. I switched it to the warm setting for about 30 minutes after, and it thickened up the sauce a bit. I served over baked sweet potatoes. Thanks for sharing! Made for PAC Spring '14
