Tripp and Finn In The Kitchen: Easy BBQ Pulled Pork

This is a great dinner during the  week.  Low maintenance and everybody loves
  • 1.5-2 lb boneless pork tenderloin
  • Your favorite bbq sauce
  • 1/2 tbspn brown sugar
  • 2 tbsn bbq rub- I like Emeril’s bbq rub- but any kind will do.
  • 1/4 tspn salt
  • 1/2 tspn pepper
Directions- this is so simple mom you are on your own
Moms Jobs:
  • take pork tenderloin out in am and put in crock pot
  • Salt, pepper, rub the pork tenderloin,
  • put 1/4 cup of water and brown sugar in bottom of crock pot
  • cook all day
When you get ready for dinner, take your favorite bbq sauce and fork and shred!
You can do a lot with this-
You can serve pulled pork by itself, make sliders, do bbq pork nachos or quesadillas!  Tonight we are going to have mashed potatoes, apple sauce, and simple green beans with bbq pulled pork.
Enjoy!  Until next time... Holly, Tripp, and Finn

  • chicken chopped into bite size pieces
  • 3 celery stalks chopped
  • 2 tbsn mayonnaise
  • 2 tspn white vinegar
  • 1 cup grapes quartered
  • 2 tbsns Parsley chopped finely
  • 1/4 tspn salt
  • 1/2 tspn pepper
Moms Jobs:
  • Chop everything
Tripp and Finn’s Jobs:
  • Mix it up and put it in the fridge! This is so refreshing- especially for the hot heat we’ve had! 
This is so easy- especially if you already have chicken made and delightful over salad and boys love with crackers.
Enjoy!  Until next time... Holly, Tripp, and Finn
