Healthier Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Recipe by  

"This pork tenderloin soaks up the yummy juices as it cooks. And the juices are healthier in this version of the recipe because we replaced the dry onion soup mix with fresh ingredients."

  1. Place pork tenderloin in a slow cooker with sliced onions. Pour water, wine, and soy sauce over top, turning pork to coat. Spread garlic over the pork, leaving as much on top of roast as possible. Sprinkle with pepper. Cover and cook on Low setting, until pork is slightly pink in the center, about 4 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
  2. Serve with cooking liquid on the side as au jus.

Yummo!!! Rather than a tenderloin, I couldn't pass up a pork loin (the ones wrapped in a netting of sorts) and it turned out great. Really tender and flavorful. I did baste it with juices/sauce a few times and flipped it a couple times in the last hour. I also probably cooked it longer figuring it was in a slow cooker so... I also took a tip from the original recipe and removed the meat to rest before cutting, mixed a little cornstarch and water and added it to the juices to make a gravy. I am not a gravy eater but my hubby loved it. I will definitely make this one again!

This was incredibly tender, but had almost no flavor. It was nearly as bland as baby food and no one in my house would eat it. I ate leftovers by myself for a week with a variety of sauces to give it some flavor.

Yummy and healthier than the other version! I have been making my own dry soup mix for years to reduce the sodium. This is tender and so easy to prepare. Great dish for those days that are too hot to turn on the oven.

WONDERFUL. Very very tender, perfect.The house smelled heavenly and it was so good! A couple days later the few leftovers we had I heated up with my favorite bbq sauce and served on toasted buns....two meals for one.

Delicious, my new easy to make dinner recipe. I added a little cayenne pepper to the pork tenderloin. My hubby loves this dish too.

The pork was nice & tender but we weren't too sold on it. I think it was because it didn't go well with my side dish.
