Island Pork Tenderloin P90X

I cooked this little baby in the crock pot all day on low and it came out looking more like pulled pork. The flavors were intense with the spice rub and contrasted well with a salad. This dinner was supposed to be sliced pork tenderloin and a side salad for dinner, but since the pork was so tender it was falling apart… I went with a shredded pork salad instead.

Less dishes and more flavor combos. Sounds good to me.

I prepped this meal before work and came home to a delicious smelling garage… seriously, the flavors are that great.
