Crock Pot Wednesdays - Mexican Pulled Pork

Debbie from Dining With Debbie left a comment on my Menu Planning Monday post and here is my response. A very delicious and super easy Mexican Pulled Pork recipe for the Crock Pot.

3-6 pounds of pork (we use pork tenderloin when it is on sale)
1 can cola (no diet please)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 cinnamon sticks or sub 2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 bay leaf
2 cloves garlic (whole or chopped)

Put all ingredients in the crock pot and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours.

We shred the meat and use it two different ways. First, we add bbq sauce to some shredded meat and make pulled pork sandwiches. Then a couple nights later we use some of the shredded meat to make burritos with rice and black beans (we heat up a drained can with a 1/4 cup of salsa). This recipe is a family favorite and great for those nights my son has a football game.
