Slow Cooker Carnitas (Pulled Pork)

Personally, I prefer making it this way

"This makes a great filling for tamales, enchiladas, tacos and burritos. It can topped with sour cream, tomatoes, beans and lettuce. It can also be served with just the pork meat on a plate with some bread. This filling is also great combined with your favorite barbecue sauce and served on buns." — Firebyrd Firebyrd

Only so so. Since you pour off the liquid, you don't really get the root beer flavor. I would just make a standard tenderloin in the oven next time.

This is as delicious as it is easy! Three ingredients, how could it go wrong? I also used Sweet Baby Ray's bbq sauce. Everyone loved it. This is a keeper, thanks for posting!

So easy to make! The only thing I changed was the amount of BBQ sauce. We used a pork tenderloin (from a pack of 5) and added the BBQ sauce to smaller portions of the pulled pork and my kids find BBQ sauce too spicy. Very tasty! We also added coleslaw on top of the pork.
