Eating Healthy – Recipe: Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Juicy pork tenderloin in the slow cooker #recipe

I am constantly looking for slow cooker recipes that are easy and healthy. Sometimes when you find a slow cooker recipe, it will have 20 ingredients or considerable prep time. 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!

    The recipe looks wonderful! However, it looks like the piece of meat is pork loin, not tenderloin. I’ve been buying tenderloin for many many years and very rarely seen one bigger than 1 1/2 lb. The two cuts of meat are not the same thing. Is it a piece of pork loin?
