Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
  1. Season the pork tenderloin with salt and pepper and place into your slow cooker.
  2. Place all marinade ingredients into a small bowl or jug and whisk to combine.
  3. Pour marinade into the slow cooker over your pork and toss to coat.
  4. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-6 hours.
  5. Once your pork is cooked, transfer to a plate and cover with foil and allow it to rest for 5-10 minutes.
  6. While your meat is resting, turn the slow cooker down to low and add your arrowroot powder (if using) to that glorious, caramelized, sweet, spicy sauce and stir to combine. This will help the remaining sauce to thicken.
  7. Once your meat has rested, shred it with 2 forks and return it to your now thickened sauce, add a squeeze of lime and stir to combine.
  8. Enjoy xo

    Seriously my favorite pulled pork recipe yet! Made it for me and my boyfriend and he wouldn’t stop snacking in out before i could even put it on a plate! I served it on top of a bed of mashed white sweet potatoes. Amazing.

    Oh Yay, I’m so glad to hear you love it as much as I do.

    Served on sweet potatoes sounds divine! I’ll have to try that next time! Yummmmm
