Rated as 4.38 out of 5 Stars

"This makes a massive batch of pulled pork that is great for cook-outs, potlucks, parties for a sizable group, or for lunches and dinners with plenty of extras to freeze and reheat. Substitute any other diet soda; the soda is used as a substitute for brown sugar. Dish can be served by itself or 'sloppy joe' style on hamburger buns."

  1. Cut each pork tenderloin into 4 pieces and place into a slow cooker; set to High.
  2. Stir onions, barbecue sauce, crushed tomatoes, diet soda, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, liquid smoke flavoring, paprika, red pepper flakes, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a bowl; pour mixture over pork tenderloin pieces. Cover and cook until tenderloin pieces begin to shred at the edges, 3 to 4 hours.
  3. Shred meat using 2 forks; reduce slow cooker setting to Low and cook 1 more hour.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I used 3 (1 1/2-pound) packs Farmland Oven Perfect® Chipotle BBQ pork loin fillets.
  • Partner Tip
  • Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.
