Pork Tenderloin in the crockpot is such a perfect weeknight meal. Is there really anything better than throwing all your food in a crockpot in the morning and coming home to dinner done? I personally don’t think it can get any better.
I just love the simplicity that comes with a crockpot recipe. Most recipes are dump and go, but may require some peeling and slicing, but typically easy and always tastes great. This is a short blog post, due to it being so easy and the crockpot does all the work for you.
Morning Prep Work
Grab out your crockpot and start cutting up the flavor pieces, apples, onion and potatoes. Cut them into smaller chunks, but not too small of they’ll break down too much. Toss them into the bottom of the crockpot, mix them up a little bit.
Get your spices all mixed together. I prefer a lot of flavor so I use as many as I feel will give it the flavor I’m looking for. In this recipe I used, Cumin, Turmeric, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Paprika, Black Pepper. Mix it all together in a bowl and than spread it over your potatoes, onions and apples. Save about half the seasonings to add to the tenderloin.
Now you want to add your chicken broth and than add in your pork tenderloin. Sprinkle the remainder of the seasonings all over the tenderloin , turn on low and set the timer on the crockpot. 6-8 Hours on low, depending on how big the tenderloin is.
