This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Weave Made Media®, and Smithfield®, but all my opinions are my own. #weavemade #DeliciousInMinutes #GetBacktoPork http://my-disclosur.es/RgFrEH

Being a teacher is exciting and rewarding, but man is it tiring! I have 140 8th graders that I teach each day, so you can imagine that by the time I get home I’m not exactly excited and energetic to cook for my family. So since school started a month ago, my crockpot and I have become best buds. If you are looking for a delicious back to school dinner, this spicy Dr. Pepper pulled pork sandwich is a must try.
I feel like we are finally getting into a good, stress free routine. Our goal for the month is to only eat out in restaurants once a week, but in order to do this I have to make sure I meal plan for the week and that it’s meals that are easy to cook. What I like about this pulled pork is that I can make the sandwiches one day and the next will use the leftovers for pork tacos. 

Ingredients needed:
Smithfield® Golden Rotisserie Tenderloin (I picked mine up at Walmart)
½ onion
2 jalapenos
1 can Dr. Pepper
Hamburger Buns
Cheddar Cheese Slices

  1. Place the Smithfield Golden Rotisserie Tenderloin in the crockpot and pour over the can of Dr. Pepper.
  2. Slice the jalapenos, onions and lay on top of the tenderloin.
  3. Cook on high for 4-6 hours or low for 8 hours – or until cook thoroughly.
  4. Shredded the pork with a fork and set aside.
  5. Add a slice of cheddar cheese to one side of hamburger and toast in the oven.
  6. Add the pork to the bread and top with jalapenos. Serve with French fries and enjoy!

I like that I can put this on in the morning and not worry about making dinner after a long day with a bunch of middle school students. Having a simple, easy and mouthwatering dinner that is easy to make really helps us stay in a good weeknight routine.

  6. I have never heard of adding Dr Pepper to a meat but I'm guessing it adds a lot of flavor and the acid stuff in the soda makes the meat more tender. I'll have to try this some time!
