Improvised Pork Au Jus

To make the Pork Lo Mein, I had to buy a whole pork tenderloin.  I only needed part of it, so I decided to put it in the crock pot and make some pulled pork.  The only problem was that I hadn’t planned for that, so I didn’t really have the ingredients that were in a lot of the recipes.  So I improvised with the ingredients that I had, and it came out great!  And as luck would have it, I had a bunch of fresh rolls that were perfect for it.

Ingredients:

  • Pork tenderloin (or in this case, most of one)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • a few cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper

Directions:

It’s pretty simple, really.  Just place the tenderloin in the crock pot, pour all of the ingredients on top, and let it cook until it pulls apart with a fork.  In my case, about 5 hours.

To serve, put some of the shredded pork on the bottom half of a roll.  I dip the bottom of the top half of the roll into the au jus–the sauce that is made from cooking the tenderloin.  Eating pulled pork on a fresh roll…it doesn’t get much better than that!
