Pork loin is so lean, it dries out in the slow cooker. I added a piece of pork shoulder that I had, and while the flavour isn't much better, the texture certainly is. Even after marinating overnight, the flavour of this was still very bland. I shredded the meat, added back some of the liquid in the crock and a lot more seasoning. That seemed to help.
To serve this, I heated some bacon fat in a nonstick pan and pressed the shredded meat into it, letting it form a crust before flipping it over (in bits). The crusty, brown flavour helped the overall taste of the dish immensely.
