Superbowl- Pulled Pork

This Sunday marks one of my family's favorite holidays: Superbowl! I am a HUGE football fan. There may or may not have been a time I bought a big screen TV for the kitchen just in case the Jets made it to the Superbowl. While my Jets didn't go all the way (J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS!) we still all come together and watch the game every year.

Friends of ours made it to the finals in a tailgate competition. They will be bringing their Jets bus and grill all the way to Dallas for the finals. Good Luck to the Winters Brothers!

Investing in a slow cooker is a great idea. It's easy to set and forget plus you can pack it to bring over to the party right in the cooker to keep it warm. Here's a great recipe for game day or any day.

Pulled Pork:

1 (2 pound) pork tenderloin
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle root beer
1 (18 ounce) bottle of Sweet Baby Rays BBQ Sauce
8 hamburger buns
Additions: You can also get Scoops chips, guacamole, or sour cream to add

Place the pork tenderloin in a slow cooker; pour the root beer over the meat. Cover and cook on low until well cooked and the pork shreds easily, 6 to 7 hours. Drain well. Shred meat with two forks and stir in barbecue sauce. Set on low for another 30 minutes. Serve on hamburger buns or with Scoops or chips.
