Brown Sugar Bourbon Pork Tenderloin

I have been making my Sweet & Spicy Shredded Pork for quite a while and I can't tell you how much I love it. I have made it lots for just our family and several times for pretty large gatherings. I never thought that I would find something to top that. I haven't decided if this pork tops it yet, but it certainly is it's equal. It was so delicious and super easy to make since I just threw it in the crock pot. This recipe uses a spice mix, which I don't usually do,but I love McCormick's Grill Mates marinades, especially the chipotle one, and this one is fairly new, I think. It sounded too good to pass up.

1 2-lb. pork tenderloin (or other pork roast)
1 packet (1-oz) McCormick Brown Sugar Bourbon Marinade
Juice of 1 orange
1/4 cup oil
2-4 Tbsp. water

Trim all the fat off of the pork and cut it into large chunks. Put the pork into a crockpot. Mix the rest of the ingredients and pour over the pork. Stir it around a little bit so that the pieces get coated with the marinade. Put the lid on and cook on high for about 2-3 hours, or until it falls apart.

After it's done cooking, shred it, either in the crock pot or on a plate. Turn the crock pot on low and let it cook another 30-60 minutes.

Serve it as you would any other pulled pork. We love to eat our with fresh tortillas with black beans and rice or like a salad with lettuce, beans and rice.
