Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin

It’s Monday.  The start of another crazy week.  One thing that keeps me sane during crazy weeks is my slow cooker.  I love her.   She’s a hard worker in my kitchen.  This time, I used my slow cooker to make this amazing Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin.  There is so much flavor packed into this dish.  It’s quickly becoming one of my family’s favorite quick dinner ideas and easy recipes  that always makes it into my meal planning rotation.

My family loved the flavor of this dish!  The pork was fall-apart tender and the sauce was thick, rich and velvety!  It was so each to put together, too.  It took no time at all to get in the slow cooker and then set it and forget it.  I suppose you could skip the browning step if you’re in a hurry.  To be honest, I’ve been known to skip the browning phase of some recipes and they turn out just fine.

I served this pork with my good old standby side dish, Parmesan Orzo.  But, rice or mashed potatoes would work beautifully too!

When it comes to slow cookers, there are many options available – from the basic to the ultra fancy. My favorite is the Hamilton Beach 33967 Set ‘n Forget 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker. I have had a number of slow cookers over the years and this is by far my favorite. It’s easy to use and program. It’s just the right size and it has handy clips that hold the lid on securely while you’re traveling.

    We don’t eat a lot of salt, so I’d pass on this one next time. It does remind me of an Asian style pork dish though!
