4 pounds pork tenderloin

2 large onions, sliced

1 (18 oz) bottle Sweet Baby Rays barbecue sauce or your favorite

1 recipe for Simply Crunchy Slaw

12 whole wheat or multi-grain hamburger buns, I used Trader Joe’s Honey Wheat buns


1. Cut each piece of pork tenderloin in half, to easily fit in the crock pot.

2. Place slices from 1 onion on the bottom of the crock pot.  Add all the pork.  Cover the pork with the other onion slices.

3. Pour ½ of the bottled barbecue sauce over the top.  Cover and cook on high setting for 30 minutes.  Turn temperature down to low and cook for about 3 ½ -4 hours, until it’s easy to shred with a fork.

4. Remove the tender pork to a cutting board or plate and shred with a fork.  Discard the sauce from the crock pot.  In a large bowl, add the shredded pork and remaining barbecue sauce.  Toss to coat well. Just before serving, heat shredded pork in microwave before serving.

5. To assemble the sandwiches: Heat the buns slightly in the microwave or oven.  Mound ½ cup of pork on bottom of the bun.  Top with ½ coleslaw and other half of bun.

Makes 12 sandwiches (each serving, ½ cup shredded pork and ½ cup coleslaw)
