Slow cooked pork ranks up there as one of my favorite foods. Tender, delicious, packed with flavor, and low in calories when made with lean tendeloin – it’s easy, versatile, and so so tasty. This basic recipe makes a tasty pork dish all on it’s own but crisped up in the broiler and then tossed with barbecue or honey and orange, and you have a killer combination. Use leftovers in tacos, burritos, a simple ragu, salads, or sandwiches.
