Easy Pulled Pork

I was really worried that cooking a pork loin this way would leave it too dry.  Fortunately, that was not the case!  After cooking for 3 hours in a low heat oven, the meat fell apart and was very tasty.  The other bonus of this dinner is that it is healthy.  The pork loin is a very lean cut of meat and there is only one tablespoon of olive oil.  Much better for you than the traditional pulled pork that is from the fatty Boston Butt!
