Crock Pot Pork Tenderloin

OK, confession, not my picture, I forgot to take on of my meal, but this most closely represents what my meat looked like haha! And plus, you knew I didn’t do all that plating with the coffee beans and the garnish on the side, get real people. However, this meal is simple and delicious, perfect for a night when you have a lot going on during the day and won’t want to come home and slave away in the kitchen. Cook time is about 4 hours, so its best for crock pots with delay timers and such, as it does not cook all day. I prefer my meat a little more on the rare side so 3.5 hours would have been about perfect. None the less, the sauce that results from the stock left in the crock pot is also lip smacking good. Definitely a recipe worth trying out!

Ingredients:

  • 1 (2 pound) pork tenderloin
  • 1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup red wine
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
Instructions:
Place pork tenderloin in a slow cooker with the contents of the soup packet. Pour water, wine, and soy sauce over the top, turning the pork to coat. Carefully spread garlic over the pork, leaving as much on top of the roast during cooking as possible. Sprinkle with pepper, cover, and cook on low setting for 4 hours. Serve with cooking liquid on the side as au jus.
So simple, and pretty legit, considering my Dad makes the most delicious pork tenderloin ever on his green egg (its a grill, in case you were wondering). Definitely not up to his standards, but pretty good for a crock pot meal. We ate it with home made mashed potatoes and a salad. Pretty good for a minimum labor dinner on a Sunday afternoon. Definitely give this one a try if you’re looking for something different to try in the crock pot!
