"Pork tenderloin cooked all day in the slow cooker makes for an affordable, delicious supper! Serve pork on warm rolls/bread with a few dollops of the sauce. It's also great with sauted onions."

  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.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If you wish, add about 1/4 cup prepared BBQ sauce to the shredded pork.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.
