Slow Cooker Mexican Pulled Pork

Slow Cooker Mexican Pulled Pork
•2 (8 oz) cans tomato sauce
•1 Tbsp chili powder
•1 Tbsp ground cumin
•2 Tbsp brown sugar, divided
•1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
•½ tsp salt
•3 cloves garlic, minced
•1 lb pork tenderloin
1.In a slow cooker, combine the tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin, 1 Tbsp of the brown sugar,cayenne pepper, salt, and garlic. Stir until well combined.
2.Carefully place the pork into the sauce in the slow cooker. Make sure it is all covered with the sauce. Cook on low for 8 hours.
3.Remove the pork from the slow cooker and shred the pork using two forks, pulling against the grain of the meat. Pour the sauce from the slow cooker into another bowl. Add the pork back to the slow cooker and add just enough of the sauce to make the meat saucy just like a bbq pulled pork. Then mix in the remaining 1 Tbsp of brown sugar for extra sweetness.
