Lemon Pepper Lettuce Cups

This fresh and easy recipe is one that most of the hard work is again done by the slow cooker, and why not? The only thing you have to do is assemble and chop a few things, and other than the meat cooking, this can be put together in minutes! 
1 Hormel lemon pepper pork tenderloin
1 head butter lettuce, leaves pulled apart 
1 avocado, cored and cubed

Lemon Aioli:

1/2 c. mayonnaise 
1 tsp. grated lemon zest
1-2 Tbs. lemon juice
1 tsp. Dijon 
1 garlic clove, minced

Cook a Hormel lemon pepper tenderloin in the slow-cooker for 8 hours on low (6-8). Remove from the liquid and shred. Place back into the liquid until ready to serve.
Mix all of the aioli ingredients together in a small dish and set aside. To assemble the dish, lay out the butter head lettuce on your serving platter. Place 1-2 teaspoons of pork on top of each lettuce cup. Top with a small amount of the aioli, diced avocado, and fresh cilantro. If you want people to assemble their own, make a large plate with all of the toppings and add the pork to a small serving dish.
