Juicy pork tenderloin in the slow cooker #recipe

I want to throw ingredients in and enjoy the meal later in the day…no hassle. Here is one of my favorite slow cooker recipes:

We only make pork in our crock pot. It melts in your mouth! We usually make Pork BBQ and eat on it for a few days. Thank you for the recipe so we can try something new!

I think I’m going to try this one this week. It’s a slight variation of my onion garlic pork chops. I’ll have to figure out something else other than wine though, since we don’t drink it or stock it LOL. Thanks for sharing this on the Dishing It Up recipe hop!
