Quick-Eat-A Carnita

For the final day of the Twin Cities Live Kitchen Star Competition, I needed to make a recipe that had only 5 ingredients. I made these Carnitas(Spanish terminolgy for pulled pork tacos) a few weeks before for Bubbie and Will. Pork Tenderloin happen to be on sale and we were in need of some home-cooked food in our house. I put it in the crockpot on a Thursday night and on Friday we had a delicious crock full of pulled pork. We used what we had in our fridge at the time, which happened to be the below ingredients and it was a hit. I like to use the Trader Joe’s peanut dressing if you shop at TJ’s. For the challenge I had to shop at Cub and the closest thing was Kraft Sesame dressing. These are great for a Friday night when you try and stop yourself from dialing your local pizza joint’s phone number.
