Sandi’s Delicious Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Less than a year after we were married, my husband and I decided to move into a house with my sister, brother-in-law and their newborn baby.

We saw this as a way to spend time with some of our best friends, as well as a way to save money for the future.

One of the benefits of having roommates, and there were many, was sharing the cooking responsibilities.

Each couple would buy their own groceries, but we usually planned at least 2 nights a week when we would cook for everyone. It was a fun way to try out new recipes or to eat favorites that were usually made by the other couple.

One of our favorites was my sister’s recipe for pulled pork sandwiches. Yum! I would like to say that it is fast, but since this is a slow cooker recipe it does take some time.

This is a good one to set up right before you go to work in the morning or before you start running your errands for the day.

Since we’ve moved out of that house (and out of the state!) this recipe still shows up on our menu at least once a month thanks to my sister!

Sandi’s Delicious Pulled Pork Sandwiches


  • 1 to 1½ lbs Pork Tenderloin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 ½ tsp cinnamon (optional, but trust me- it’s good!)
  • Beef stock (I usually buy 32oz and use enough to cover the pork in the crockpot)
  • Your favorite BBQ sauce
  • Bread, buns or rolls (I recommend King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls!)


  1. Cut off any excess fat from the pork tenderloin
  2. Season pork with salt, pepper and cinnamon
  3. Place pork in crockpot and add enough of the beef stock to cover the pork. If you don’t have enough, at least cover half of the pork and turn it over halfway through cook time.
  4. Cook covered on low for 8 hours
  5. After pork has finished cooking, remove pork from crockpot and drain juices.
  6. Pull pork – I normally put the pork in a 9×13 dish and use two forks, but that’s just me. I’ve found it easier to remove from the crockpot, pull it apart and return it to keep it warm.
  7. After pork has been pulled apart, add desired amount of BBQ sauce – coating evenly.
  8. Add pork to your favorite bread or roll and eat up
