    I used a 4 pound tenderloin roast because I was looking for something a little healthier. I followed the recipe exactly other than that. It was dry when shredding but came to life after adding the cooking liquid (excess fat skimmed). Definitely a keeper.

    Absolutely delicious! I added one sliced onion to the slow cooker (1/2 on bottom, 1/2 on top) and it turned out so good. Definitely a keeper.

    Tried these today but was a bit confused. The description (top of recipe) talked about using fresh tomatoes but they were not called for in the recipe. Which is wrong; the recipe or description? Loved them either way and will definitely make again. Rave reveiws from my husband!

    I used 4 lbs of pork tenderloin - turned out great (yes it does shred perfectly)! Also added a can of Ro-Tel, 1/2 can of Bud LIght Lime, 1 diced onion and 1/2 can of chicken broth (add more as needed). Served with shredded cabbage in addition to the toppings above.

    I would give this 5 stars for ease of preparation. However, despite putting in extra cumin and oregano, it came out rather bland. I did end up with 3 pounds of tender pulled pork and I'll doctor it up with BBQ sauce. Update. I pulled some out of the freezer a month later. Defrosted meat, put it in a flour tortilla with some cheddar cheese and micro-waved it. It was some good!

    Very spicy! Excellent flavor, but next time I'll use only one can of chiles. Once the pork was removed from the slow cooker, I added more OJ and lime juice, plus a little white vinegar to cut the heat.
