Pulled Pork Sandwiches-Slow Cooked

I have had these on my must try list for the past couple of weeks, from all the great reviews I have heard about them. I used a 1.5 pound pork tenderloin and it was plenty for us with some leftovers. I used a sauce that we love on ribs, but I think it was a bit spicy for the pork tenderloin, I would use something sweeter next time. I served our pulled pork sandwiches with sweet potato fries (from frozen), it was our first taste of them and they were okay-could have been crispier though. I had planned to make some baked zucchini chips, but I've done so much cooking this weekend, that most of my essential cooking items were in the sink/dishwasher. I plan to make this again, plus it cooks in the slow cooker, which I love since I am usually short on time. The leftovers will be great on some baked potatoes tomorrow for lunch-YUM!

The recipe:

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork (from Allrecipes)
1 (2 pound) pork tenderloin 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle root beer (I used store brand) 1 (18 ounce) bottle your favorite barbecue sauce (I used Gates Barbeque Sauce) 8 hamburger buns, split and lightly toasted

Place the pork tenderloin in a slow cooker; pour the root beer over the meat. Cover and cook on low until well cooked and the pork shreds easily, 6 to 7 hours. Note: the actual length of time may vary according to individual slow cooker. Drain well. Stir in barbecue sauce. Serve over hamburger buns.
