I have been making this pulled pork for years and I absolutely love it!

The rub for this is what I love the most. It gives the pork so much flavor. It’s a combination of garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, dry mustard and salt.

What I like to do is make the rub and put it on the pork tenderloin the night before. I just keep it in the fridge until the next day.

Every time I open up the fridge that night I am greeted by the smell of the seasonings. It makes me so excited to eat it!

If you don’t have time to add the rub the night before it’s ok. Your pork will still have tons of flavor.

Another good thing about this pulled pork is you can make it in the oven, slow cooker or pressure cooker. Lately I have been doing it in the pressure cooker because it’s so fast.

I’ve had it all three ways and they are each great.

To cook the pork in the oven you simply prepare the pork with the rub, place in a covered roasting pan and add beer or chicken broth. Cook at 300 degrees for 3 hours.

To cook the pork in the slow cooker you prepare the pork with the rub, place in the slow cooker and add the beer or chicken broth. Cook on low for 6 hours.

To cook in the pressure cooker you prepare the pork with the rub, place the pork in the pressure cooker and add the beer or chicken broth. Manually cook the pork for 30 minutes, then do a quick release.

After the pork is done cooking you take it out and shred it. Then I put it back in the liquid to soak up all of the juices and keep it from drying out.

The pork is only 2 Freestyle points per serving. You can eat it by itself with side dishes, or you can make a sandwich out of it. However you want to do it is up to you, just make sure you calculate any additional points.

Today I made mine into a sandwich. I had a small dinner roll and a little bit of coleslaw. It was 7 Freestyle points.
