Honey Balsamic Pulled Pork
1 2-lb pork tenderloin
½ cup balsamic vinegar
1 cup water
2 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp splenda brown sugar blend
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp onion powder
½ tsp black pepper
2 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce (or tamari)
2 Tbsp cold water + 1 Tbsp corn starch
Whisk together vinegar, water, and next six ingredients.
Add pork to your slow cooker. Pour sauce over pork. Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours or on low 8 hours.
BEFORE SHREDDING MEAT: Use a small strainer or a spoon to discard excess fat from the liquid in the slow cooker. Transfer as much liquid from the slow cooker as possible to a medium sauce pan. Bring to boil over medium-high heat. Whisk together cold water and corn starch and stir into boiling sauce. Reduce to simmer and cook for 3-4 minutes until slightly thickened. Shred pork, pour sauce over the top and serve.
