Slow cooker recipes are a great time saver. There is just something about having a delicious dinner cooking away while you are busy doing other things. My slow cooker is one of the most hardworking appliances in my kitchen. Seriously, I use it at least once a week.
This recipe is one of my favorite easy crock pot recipe. I love it because the pork becomes super tender allowing the thick, flavorful glaze to ooze down into it. To make this recipe even easier, you can make the glaze ahead of time and stash it in the fridge until you’re ready to use it.
You can use any thick cut of pork that you’d like for this recipe – I used Smithfield pork that I picked up at Walmart. I like the way the pork tenderloin cooked in the slow cooker. It was thick enough that it didn’t dry out during the cooking process.
My family devoured this. They couldn’t get enough. I know this will be making regular appearances on our meal plan!
