Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Ah the slow cooker.  This is man's gift to the busy working family!  This recipe calls for a tenderloin but you can use much cheaper cuts (such as the shoulder or butt) and it'll yield the same fabulous tasting results.  I've also substituted chicken breast for the pork and it's also very yummy.  Sometimes I'll use diet root beer and I've even used cola before when that's all I had on-hand.  I'm still not sure what the purpose of the pop is but it seems to make it taste good haha!  Give this one a try, it's one of the easiest meals you could possibly make :).
