This diabetes-friendly recipe for Down-Home Shredded Pork gets its special flavor from the Test Kitchen's secret recipe: diet root beer! Pair it with some coleslaw and you've got a meal that can't be beat!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (2-pound) package pork tenderloin, trimmed, rinsed, and patted dry (2 per package)
  • 1 cup diet root beer
  • 1/2 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
What To Do:
  1. Coat a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Over medium-high heat, brown both tenderloins on all sides.
     
  2. Pour root beer into a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. Add pork and onion, and pour barbecue sauce on top.
     
  3. Cook on LOW 4 to 6 hours, or until pork easily breaks apart. Using 2 forks, shred pork in slow cooker, mixing with sauce. 
     
Notes
  • To make your own low-carb barbecue sauce, whisk together 1/2 cup reduced-sugar ketchup, 1/4 cup cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon molasses, and 1 teaspoon dry barbecue seasoning mix. Store in refrigerator until ready to use. Makes 3/4 cup.
  • Serve on Bibb lettuce with shredded carrot and scallion to make a tasty lettuce wrap.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This is more a general comment using this recipe. How can a recipe with 83.7 grams of sugar be diabetic friendly?

Oh my gosh--only three ingredients! How wonderful. This would be so easy to throw together on a weeknight.

Not a big pork fan, but I thought it was very good

Sounds good....and easy! Will be making this on Christmas Eve.
