    Super easy, super delicious!! I also used the McCormick Pork Rub and let it sit over night and put it together in the morning on an 8 hour timer. Will definitely be doing this again soon!

    Could I use a pork tenderloin instead? I have a 1-lb tenderloin to use.

    Love this recipe! I first tasted it when my friend cooked it. I begged her for the recipe and she told me to find it through Crockin’ Girls! So glad I did. Made it myself and cooked it for a main dish at a party and everyone LOVED it! The only seasoning I added was garlic and sliced some onions. I have had it without onions though and it was just fine!

    Heidi…if you don’t want them to turn to mush, I would add the green pepper and onion during the last 2 hours of crockin’ time.

    When is a good time to add green pepper and onion? I don’t want them to disappear in the pulled pork?

    Excellent! I added a whole sweet onion and used Mccormicks pork rub. Everybody loved it. A new family fav and very easy to make….

    Delicious! My husband’s new favorite shredded pork recipe. I seasoned the meat with lots of garlic powder, seasoned salt, cayenne and black pepper. It actually wasn’t a spicy dish, but I think the spices helped counter the sweet soda. We ate it on hawaiian sandwich rolls with a little extra BBQ sauce on top of the meat. Mmmm.

    This was good. My 2 year old and husband loved it. We had to add extra bbq sauce on top of the pork.

    It was good but family thought it was a bit to sweet.
