Directions

  1. Season pork tenderloin with salt, black pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; fry pork in hot oil until browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Transfer meat to a slow cooker. Add water, brown sugar, cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and hot sauce.
  3. Cook on Low for 7 hours. Remove tenderloin to a platter and drain cooking liquid, reserving about 1/2 cup. Shred pork and return to slow cooker. Add enough reserved liquid to moisten meat.
  4. Whisk mayonnaise, white vinegar, garlic powder, lemon pepper, and 1 pinch cayenne pepper together in a bowl. Serve mayonnaise sauce with shredded pork.

This pork turned out very tender and was easy to shred. I added about a quarter cup of bbq sauce and served mine on a soft taco shell with a spoon full of coleslaw and the sauce provided in the recipe (which my boyfriend said was amazing). Thanks for the recipe.

Outstanding. I omitted the cayenne and hot sauce because my son doesn't care for anything too spicy, and I knew my husband would douse his serving with hot sauce regardless. I also only added 1/2 cup of water, but still had plenty for the slow cooker. I was a little concerned when it first started cooking, the vinegar scent was strong, but it mellowed throughout the day, and mmmmmm, the end result was delicious. I would recommend this recipe for families like ours with varied tastes, it is a good, tasty meat and people can add more hot sauce or barbeque sauce to their own servings.

Seriously great recipe! I've tried many pulled pork recipes. This one is certainly unique! I strongly suggest eating this with the mayonnaise sauce. It made the sandwich! Thank you, Morgan for sharing this recipe!
