BBQ Pulled Pork (FREEZER MEAL)

A simple and delicious freezer meal. Pork Tenderloins routinely go on sale, keep an eye out and stock up.

To assemble: Cut a raw 4-5lb pork tenderloin in half and put in a labeled Ziploc bag, sprinkle a pack of Pulled Pork seasoning over the pork, and pour a bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce over it. Seal and freeze.

To cook: Take out the bag the night before to thaw in the fridge. The next morning, pour the tenderloin and BBQ sauce in the slow-cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours until pork is done. Take the pork out and shred it with two forks (I just throw mine in my stand mixer with the paddle attachment and turn it to low and it shreds it for me). Season the BBQ liquid with salt to taste and return the shredded pork to the sauce, mix well. Serve the pork on good hamburger buns with mayo and bread-n-butter pickles.

You should try the McCormick Slow Cookers BBQ Pulled Pork Seasoning. I have my favorite bottle BBQ sauce for different recipes, but this is, by far, the best BBQ I've had. I LOVE it.

I used a apple and maple BBQ sauce that was out of this world. YUM! :) This made a great pulled pork!

How much does this make? How many servings?

The Virtuous Wife said...

Several! At least 6 to 10...depending on whether or not you have side items to go with it. :)

So are you using half the pork, or just cutting it so its easier to fit in the bag?

Megan said...

From the pictures it looks like both go in the same bag. Maybe it's cut to aid in cooking? if it wasn't it would take longer to cook.

I just cut it so that it fits in my slow-cooker. If I didn't, it would hang out halfway. LOL! :) Takes less time to cook, too!
