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.

Instructions Checklist
  • Cut each pork tenderloin into 4 pieces and place into a slow cooker; set to High.

  • 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.

  • 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(R) Chipotle BBQ pork loin fillets.

Partner Tip

Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

Sweet & Smoky Slow Cooked Pulled Pork Haiku: "Didn't like nutmeg. Dr. Pepper a nice touch did mine low n' slow." Used a pork LOIN (3 lb.) not tenderloin b/c I don't like to obliterate a lovely tenderloin by shredding it and rubbed it down w/ the dry spices called for in the recipe. Dumped all the ingredients on top of it and let it sit on low for 7 hrs. b4 shredding and returning it to the slow-cooker where I left it on the "warm" setting for a little while b4 we were ready to have it for dinner. (Served w/ sweet potato fries salad and collard greens.) I thought the nutmeg was a little too heavy and the sauce too watery so making it again I'd halve the nutmeg and drain the tomatoes entirely.

It's actually still in the pot. Had to taste it while shredding it! I like it! Tasty but not overpowering the flavor of the pork. I also used Sweet Baby Rays original BBQ sauce. Like some of the others said a little too watery but that's easy to remedy next time. I will be cooking for his again with a tweak or two. Good recipe as it is though! Read More
