Crock Pot Pulled Pork With Sauerkraut

“Surprisingly tasty and the result of a mistake that left me needing to come up with a dinner with super easy prep. Freezer to table. I grabbed my crockpot, took a pork tenderloin out of the freezer stuck it in the pot & free poured apple cider I had on hand over it. Put it on & went to work. Later in the day the meat was cooking well, but for our tastes, I knew I had to kick up the flavor. I only had a few minutes to spare. That's when I came up with the other 2 ingredients. Tossed them in & turned down the heat & went back to work. How simple is that! I don't think I spent 5 minutes altogether!”
