Why I Love This Recipe

I found this recipe on the internet & was so pleased that my son could enjoy the same dinner as the rest of the family! (minus the BBQ sauce) However, both my kids loved this & hope you do too!

Ingredients You'll Need

2 medium onions, thinly sliced
4 medium garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 cup low sodium chicken broth
1 TB packed brown sugar
1 B chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 (4 1/2-5 lb) boneless pork tenderloin
2 cups bbq sauce (optional)


Place the onions and garlic in an even layer in the slow cooker & pour in the stock or broth.

Combine the sugar, chili powder, cumin and cinnamon in a small bowl.

Pat the pork dry with paper towels.

Rub the spice mixture all over the pork & place the meat on top ofo the onions & garlic.

Cover & cook until the pork is fork tender, about 6-8 hours on high.

This is the point where I would shred the pork & feed it to my son. He doesn't not eat the BBQ sauce.

Turn off the slow cooker & remove the pork to a cutting board.

Set a fine-mesh strainer over a medium heatproof bowl.

Pour the onion mixture from the slow cooker through the strainer and return the solids to the slow cooker.

Set the strained liquid aside.

Using 2 forks, shred the meat into bite-sized pieces, discarding any large pieces of fat.

Return the shredde dmeat to the slow cooker, add the BBQ sauce, use a spoon to skim and discard the fat from the surface of the strained cooking liquid and then add 1/4 cup of the liquid at a time to the slow cooker until the pork is just moistened.
