  1. Hey! Looks delicious...making these tonight! But I'm just wondering how it counts as a full purple container? Also, did you use a whole bun or just a half for your yellow container portion?

    1. Haha, I actually did the same thing last time I made it too- you would think I could follow my own recipe lol... It turned out great, just needed to add a little more vinegar and mustard at the end :)

  7. Is this using a 1 lb pork loin?

  8. How big of a pork loin did you use? And how much red wine vinegar did you use? There aren't any measurements. :) Thanks so much for sharing! I'm excited to use once I figure this part out, haha!

    1. The red wine vinegar measurement is above (1/4 cup)...you can always adjust more or less to taste and consistency preference.

      For the pork loin, I would use at least 1 pound. I buy the large pork loins at Costco and divide it up, so I don't have a precise measurement there. However, the recipe will work for any size pork loin- you might just need to add some extra vinegar and mustard to compensate for additional meat. Hope that helps!!

  9. This was AMAZEBALLS!!! I also goofed and added the vinegar to the crock pot, but I added a bit more with the mustard at the end and it turned out great. I also made your portable egg white omelets for my husband this morning and he called me from the car to tell me that they were delicious. I have pinned a bunch of your 21-Day Fix recipes and I can't wait to try them all! :)

  10. Question, after you drain are you supposed to save the past you drain and put it back in there for the sauce, or is it supposed to be dry?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. After draining, I would add sauce (a good, clean bbq sauce without corn syrup in it)... Or, you can combine red wine vinegar and yellow mustard and some seasonings to make your own bbq sauce as suggested in the recipe. Hope that helps!

  12. I made this the other day and it was the BEST pulled pork I've ever had! I even forgot to add mustard and vinegar at the end lol. I will definitely be making this again! I only counted it as one red because to me 1/4 of fruit and 1/4 of green is just silly to count and not worth the headache the trace amounts would cause.

    ReplyDelete
  13. If we are only using half a cup of applesauce and there are 4 servings, wouldn't it be 1/8 of a purple because a purple container is 1 cup? Maybe I'm just confused.

    1. You probably would be fine not counting it at all actually- its such a small amount and is only in there for moisture in the meat. Hope that helps :)

  14. Can you have pork loin on 21 day fix? I am new to all of this and was not sure. The book says pork tenderloin, is there a difference?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Pork loin and tenderloin is from the same area of the pig, just the tenderloin is a different part of the muscle (I think) and therefore is a little more tender, as the name implies :)... But you can use either with this recipe. The tenderloin is usually more expensive, so regular pork loin is ok in my book!

    1. Purple is for fruits so I was factoring in the applesauce in the recipe. Its probably ok for you not to count any purple here at all since the actual amount you would consume once its absorbed in the pork is negligible... I'm just overly thorough by nature :)

  16. I want to do a 4 pound pork loin roast so I can freeze it for later... I assume I would just quadruple the ingredients?

    1. Sounds like it would work just fine! If you have any excess liquid at the end, just drain it :)

      Delete
  17. Do you think this would work with chicken breast? Also, do you think it would still be ok if I omit the mustard? The rest sounds delicious.

    1. I'm not sure on the calorie count since 21 day fix focuses on container/portion counts instead

  20. I love this recipe (its in the crockpot right now...again). I have made it over and over and I always recommend it to new customers! (I am a beachbody coach). I love referring people to your blog :) I don't drain it, I remove the fat from the pork before I shred it and I find I don't need to add BBQ sauce or anything to it this way :) Also it is AMAZING on top of a shredded baked potato or sweet potato rather than a bun! :) Thanks again! I have loved all of your recipes I have tried and have more on the menu plan to go! :)

  21. I thought this was the pineapple pork recipe?

  22. I thought this was supposed to be pineapple pork. Very disappointed!

    ReplyDelete

    1. I'm sorry to hear you are disappointed! I'm not sure where the pineapple notion came from since there's never been pineapple in this recipe BUT what a great idea! Maybe next time try replacing the applesauce with crushed pineapple and see how that turns out? Maybe use a sweet and sour mustard in replacement of the yellow mustard and garnish the sandwiches with pineapple rings and a sprinkle of fresh, chopped cilantro. Yummy!

    2. I took a screenshot showing it says pineapple in the name of the recipe, but there's no option to add a picture. The link I clicked to see this recipe is titled crock pot pineapple pork 21 day fix approved.

    3. I think other people are linking to this site and incorrectly labeling it as "pinepple". I found this through a link on Pinterest and it says Pineapple: http://www.carrieelle.com/21-day-fix-crock-pot-recipes/
