Did you spot this “sneak peek” on Instagram? {Click this image to follow me!}
This recipe came about because I recently successfully cooked a pork tenderloin a few times. YIPPIE!! Right? Wrong! You see when you have a Hubbs who is, let’s say “particular” with what he enjoys eating, then you cook something & it’s good… Well its like I’ve set the bar to high for myself. I made ONE good pork tenderloin recipe a few times & now he is asking for more! So of course in any state of panic I call up one of my best friends for advice…

You are laughing, but I’m serious. Any meal planning dilemma I have, I don’t have time for Pinterest searching or sifting through my cookbooks, Google is my Life Assistant! And she {yes, Google is of course a woman!} is always helping me. In all of my information needing capacities, and my crazy search history can vouch for that!

So one day, as I stared at a thawing pork tenderloin, and decided that I needed to try a new recipe, my gal Google brought me to this one. It was all of my favorite things rolled up into one recipe. Quick, & easy prep. All (most) ingredients on hand. And bonus points its a Crockpot recipe, SCORE!

Ingredients
Directions
  1. Place pork tenderloin in crockpot. Salt & pepper all sides, coat with dry onion soup. Roll and rub into pork is covered.
  2. Pour water and soy sauce around pork.
  3. Place minced garlic on top of the pork and spread to cover top area.
  4. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours.
  5. Once pork is cooked, internal temperature should be between 150 and 160. Remove pork to a cutting board.
  6. Pour juices into a saucepan. In a small bowl, mix 2-3 tsp of water with 2-3 tsp of corn starch. Mix together well, then add to hot au jus on the stove. Bring to a bit of a boil and keep stirring.

Notes:
  • Depending on your gravy thickness preference, add more corn starch & water mixture. Keep these tips in mind: it takes a few minutes to “thicken” before adding anymore, a little goes a LONG way, & never add the dry corn starch powder directly to the gravy, this will create chunks!
  • I love serving this with mashed potatoes & a side of veggie.

IMG_2336logoEveryone in my house devours every last bit of this meal. There are rarely left overs! It would be easy enough to toss in another tenderloin if you wanted too. Can you say easy dinner party? Planning this one for the next time my parents visit… Which will be this week after Mom sees these pics & reads this post. HI MOM! πŸ™‚ xoxo

    1. That is 4 hours on low, I should edit that! My crockpot has 4 & 6 hours as low and 8 & 10 hours as high. And it cooks faster than you think… I have been meaning to test this out at 8 hrs for those who work!
