Pork Tenderloin in the Crockpot

While visiting family I got to try a few 'new to me' dishes, and of course I took pictures along with just plain enjoying being with family and visiting and visiting and eating and ...

I got this recipe from my sister, and she got it off of Facebook.   And of course being the great cook she is, she made a few changes to it.  Not many, but a couple.  She tweaked it in other words.
She used a pork loin rather than a tenderloin, and I would do the same.   And since she didn't have any dried onions, she used some onion powder, as well as fresh garlic.

The flavour on this was great, and is something I'm going to be making for myself sometime as well.

But since I haven't gotten around to it yet, and I did take pictures, and eat some it, I felt like I could tell you all about it.  

Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin

2 pound Pork Tenderloin
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1 TBS Yellow Mustard
2-3 TBS maple syrup
2 TBS olive oil
2 TBS Diced dried onions
1 1/2 TSP Garlic Salt or Powder
Mix ingredients above. Pour over Tenderloin in the crock pot and cook on low for 6 hours.

How simple is that?  And it was over the top good.   
See how pretty?   And it sliced so nicely as well.  And guess what?  I just bought a nice big loin, and I think part of it is earmarked for this recipe.  And I've got all the rest of the ingredients as well. 
I should add that the potatoes were freshly dug just before the dinner from my sisters garden and the cherry tomatoes, well, they were fresh picked as well.    Next year, I'm planting potatoes.

Simple, and yet such a flavourful meal.   Sigh, I miss my family, but at least I got to visit with them for awhile.

  1. Good Morning Sid, I love the idea of cooking tenderloin in a slow cooker, especially when i looks so fabulous.
    I think tweeking recipes to suit our own tastebuds is something we all do. I always try a recipe as it is printed and then tweek to add my own twist.
    There is nothing like freshly dug potatoes and tomatoes picked from the vine to make an enjoyable meal.
    Best Wishes

    1. This was such a nice meal. And yes, we all tweak a recipe, just a little. Cause we're the cooks and we can do that.
      I loved the whole meal, there is nothing, nothing like fresh veggies from the garden.
      Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I appreciate it.


I love to hear from my readers, so please feel free to drop me a note, let me know if you like something I made, it makes my day.
