Pork tenderloin in crockpot variation: I used 2-1/2 lb tenderloin, 2 large Gala apples, 1 can vegetable stock, and a can of whole berry cranberry sauce (no dried cranberries on hand). I followed Step 1 with the oil, onions and apples and then put it in the crockpot. I made 3 cuts into the top of the tenderloin, seasoned and seared as in Step 3, then put it in the crockpot and added a can of vegetable stock. Covered and cooked on high for 2 hours. I stirred up the cranberry sauce to break it up a bit, then spooned it on the top of the pork, covered and cooked for another 30 minutes.
It turned out fantastic! My kids (2&5) LOVED it and my husband (who thinks the only reason pigs exist is for bacon) enjoyed it as well. The little piece that was leftover for lunch today was even tastier! The only change I would make is to hold off adding the apples until maybe an hour into cooking; sauteing them with the onions made them way too soft when served hot, but they had a nice texture with the leftovers. I even diced them a bit larger so they wouldn't turn to mush (which they didn't, but they disintegrated when I bit into them). Easy recipe and I'm glad that I could convert it to a tenderloin in the crockpot!
