Just 3 simple ingredients and a slow cooker is all you need to make this amazingly tender and tasty pulled pork.
It’s slow cooker season here in our house, so I’ve got a collection of favorites that I’ll be rotating through along with a few new ones that I’ve got in mind to create. If I plan ahead, it makes dinner time so easy and stress-free and it usually turns out pretty darn tasty.
I’ve been making this pulled pork in the slow cooker since Brandon and I were first married. We were living in Phoenix and both working jobs where we didn’t get home until 7pm or later. If I didn’t have anything waiting for us in the slow cooker, we would just get take-out because we were both too ravenous and exhausted cook.
This pulled pork is super easy and affordable and it will feed a crowd or give you plenty leftovers for another meal or two! Sliced onions are topped with a 2-3 pound pork tenderloin and covered in your favorite bottle of barbeque sauce before being slow cooked for 6-8 hours to where it’s so tender it pretty much pulls apart on its own.
Served with some buns and a side or two and you’ve got a meal that will make everyone happy!
You should definitely add this pulled pork to your slow cooker favorites! It’s perfect for a weeknight family dinner, game day, or just for feeding a hungry crowd.
- 1 large yellow onion
- 1 (2-3 pound) pork tenderloin
- 1 (18 ounce) bottle barbeque sauce
- Peel and cut the onion into thin slices and place in the bottom of your slow cooker. Set the pork tenderloin on top of the onions. Pour the entire bottle of barbeque sauce over the pork and onions. Put the lid on the slow cooker and set to cook on low heat for 6-8 hours or on high heat for 4-6 hours. Pull it apart with a fork and serve with buns and additional barbeque sauce, if desired.
