Oh my word. I have never been so excited to share a recipe with you before! (Okay, maybe I have because I'm always excited to share recipes with you... ;) But this is gooooood stuff. Just take a look at these delicious pictures. Don't they make your mouth water?! Have you ever made pulled pork before? This was my first time! I've made a couple dishes similar to it but never the real deal.
Pork loin was on sale at my grocery store so I decided to pick one up. I started looking around for a tasty recipe to make and ended up merging several different ones to create this gem of a recipe! It is SO yummy! My boys were in heaven. And the best part? It's ridiculously EASY.
1 (12-oz) can diet soda (or regular works great too!)
1/2 bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce (I LOVE Sweet Baby Ray's!)
Lawry's Seasoning Salt
1. Spray slow cooker lightly with cooking spray. Put sliced onions on the bottom. Rinse pork loin and pat lightly with paper towels. Coat pork with a layer of Lawry's Seasoning Salt and some pepper. Place on top of onions.
2. In a medium sized bowl, mix 1/2 bottle of barbecue sauce and a can of diet soda. Pour the fizzy concoction on top of seasoned pork loin in crock pot.
3. Cover the crock pot and cook on LOW for about 7-8 hours, or until meat is fork tender. When the meat is tender enough, carefully take the pork out of the slow cooker and place on a plate and shred the meat up using two forks. Place meat back inside crock pot, stirring to combine, and let cook for another 30 minutes.
