Just finished dinner and thought I'd get the family's impressions down right away. Over all it's a good recipe. It went together very quickly I have never had a pork tenderloin cook up as tender as this one did. Because so many reviewers warned about it being too salty I cut the soy sauce to 2T, and it was borderline salty. I cooked it for 6 hours on high because my crock pot although it's a fancy digital thing it doesn't have a choice of settings and 6 hours because I wasn't going to be around until then to deal with it. The meat was so tender that it fell apart. So I went ahead and pulled it apart, put the meat into an ovenproof dish, then I thickened the sauce with some cornflour and poured it all over the top of the meat. I had already started to make tiny new potatoes but at this point it looked so much like a "comfort" food, I pulled out the instant mash potatoes (I know, but the kids love them!) and did a big bowl up in the microwave. The kids made swimming pools in the potatoes and filled them up with the meat & gravy mixture and everybody was happy. Next time I might add some carrots and mushrooms. I'll make it again.
