Ingredients

  • 1 lb (approximately 18.4 oz) low-salt pork tenderloin
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 medium white onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 whole, dried red chilis
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed with the end of a knife
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon ketchup

Directions

Step 1

Trim pork of all fat, keeping butchery strings on. In a slow cooker on low heat, add water, onion, chilis, garlic, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, dark brown sugar and ketchup.

Step 2

Place the pork tenderloin into the slow cooker, and cover. Cook on low for 7-9 hours, or until pork is fork tender.

Step 3

Remove from heat and carefully transfer the tenderloin to a large, flat dish. Reserve 1/4 cup of the pork broth (avoiding any fat), and discard remaining liquids.

Step 4

Mix reserved broth with the blackberry sauce, and microwave on high for approximately 5 minutes, stirring halfway through.

Step 5

Shred cooked pork into thick pieces with a fork and separate into six servings. Mix each serving with 2 tbsp cooked blackberry sauce. Serve over hearts of romaine, and garnish with parsley.
