Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker
Great recipe! However, some changes are needed. I, too, found the tenderloin to be a bit too salty even though I replaced the regular with the reduced sodium soy sauce. Also, I used a 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon (never cook with something that you wouldn't drink, and cooking wines are just plain heinous), 2 frozen garlic cloves, and added a pack of fresh cremini mushrooms, two small pinches of rubbed sage and thyme, 3 lbs. of tenderloin along with the rest of the listed ingredients in a 5 qt. cooker on low for six hours. The house smelled amazing, and the juices were extemely flavorful. Also, I placed the meat on a dish to rest. Strained the liquid and placed it in a pot and added some cornstarch along with H20. I served the meat and gravy with mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. Again, it was a tad bit salty for my taste even with the substition (I added a little sugar to the gravy about 2-3 pinches to help mash the salty taste). Next time I'll cut the reduced sodium soy sauce in half and maybe add worcestershire sauce.

Fluffy French Toast
The reason I am giving this recipe five stars is that's tasty and healthy at the same time. I've been making a french toast recipe for years that is awesome, but it is loaded in fat and calories. I recently had my galbladder out, and that has made me re-evaluate what I eat. This recipe has less than 200 calories and has 2.7 grams of fat. This means that I can have one piece of bacon, piece of fruit, and this recipe and I am still under 400 calories and feel full. This recipe is a definite keeper!

Slow Roasted BBQ Beef Roast
This recipe is the bomb! I made it with my Showtime rotisserie grill. It was done within 40 minutes (2.14 lbs). I let the meat sit for 30 minutes on the non-heat rotation. I then used an electric knife to carve it to very thin cuts of meat. It was wonderful, and my husband had seconds. He added some creamy horseradish and ate it like there was no tomorrow :-)
