Instructions
  1. Pour the water and salt into a stockpot. Bring to a boil and add the pork tenderloin to the brine.
  2. Turn the heat down to a simmer and let the pork boil until you can shred it with a fork or cut into chunks and then shred. This takes about an hour. Make sure it doesn’t boil dry. If it starts to go dry, just add water, 1 cup at a time until it’s shreddable. ***If you so desire, you could probably do this part in an InstantPot. You’ll have to do the research about how long to cook it though. 😉
  3. Once the pork is tender, remove it and shred. Pour the saltwater out of the pot but do not clean out any bits or brown coloring on the bottom. That’s flavor!
  4. Add the bacon grease or lard (I used bacon grease) to the same pot and melt. Add in the shredded pork and the pineapple. Cook until the edges of the chunks of pork get a bit crispy but do not burn.
  5. Enjoy as-is, over rice, in a salad, on a taco, in your breakfast, etc…
