I have always had a love of pulled pork but sometimes don't have time for the eight hours or so it normally takes to cook.  However I recently discovered you can make a quick pulled pork on the stovetop using lean pork tenderloin, barbecue sauce, and a bit of chicken broth.  The pork tenderloin cooks much more quickly than a traditional pork shoulder, which means it's ready in about twenty minutes.  Plus it's much lower in calories and fat.

In terms of serving it, I recommend making these crunchy, sweet, delicious pulled pork tostadas.  Between the crunchy baked tortilla, sweet pulled pork, cilantro, red onion, cabbage, and cheese - it's a seriously satisfying meal.
