Crock Pot Wednesday - Pulled Pork

In the February/March issue of Taste of Home, this simple wonderful recipe was a must to try. I have tried cooking pork tenderloin once or twice but I think I overcook and haven't had success.....Until....Tangy Pulled Pork Sandwiches came to my attention.

1 pork tenderloin (1 lb) approx.
1 cup ketchup
2 T plus 1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
2 T plus 1 1/2 tsp cider vinegar
1 T plus 1 1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 T spicy brown mustard
1/4 tsp pepper

Cut the tenderloin in half; place in slow cooker. Combine the ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, worcestershire sauce, mustart and pepper; pour over pork.

Cover and cook on low for 4 - 5 hours or until meat is tender. Remove meat; shred. Return to cooker, heat through. Serve on rolls.

Easy uh? Very good, I promise!

Top with mustard coleslaw.......

3/4 cup mustard
3/4 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup mayo
1 T salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 heads cabbage, shredded
1 onion, finely chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 carrot, shredded
1 celery rib, finely chopped

This feeds 24, so decrease quantity as needed. I used about 1/4 of each ingredient. You know slaw...measurements don't have to be exact...but I do love the flavor of this mixture!
