I don’t cook much pork. Real talk: I’m intimidated by it and it's not my favorite meat, though my boys love it. 

Good news: we all like pulled pork, including me, and it doesn’t get much easier than this slow-cooker pulled pork recipe. The easy slow-cooker recipe has only three ingredients and a few easy steps. If I can do it, so can you!

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Place pork tenderloin in slow cooker and pour the root beer over the meat. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours or until pork will shred easily with a fork.
