Crock Pot Pork Loin


I don’t cook pork a whole lot, but I do enjoy it.  One of these days we would like to purchase a pig, and stock our freezer with pork products…..  My Mom makes loins in her crock pot all the time, but I have yet to try it.  I went off of this recipe here, but seared both sides in a hot pan first before adding it to the crock pot.  I was a bit skeptical about not adding any liquid, but it turned out great!!

Serves 4-6 for about about $1.00/serving

1 1/2  lbs pork tenderloin – $5.26

1 1/2  tablespoons lemon juice

3 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 teaspoon crushed rosemary

1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes

1/4 teaspoon thyme

2 teaspoons onion powder

1/8 teaspoon pepper

1/8 teaspoon salt

Heat large pan over medium heat.  Combine lemon juice and all other seasonings except garlic, and roll loin around in it.  Make sure to coat well all over loin.

Saute garlic in pan for about 2-3 minutes.  Add loin to pan and brown on both sides.

Cook on low for 3-4 hours.

I opted to slice mine, and then brown it in a hot skillet with a little bit of oil before serving.

    I grill those little pork tenderloins in my panini grill. I season it, spray the grill, and grill for 7-8 min. Let it rest, slice on the diagonal, and serve with raspberry chipotle sauce on the slices.

  2. Helen, that sounds super simple, and tasty!! Thanks for the tip! I wonder if our little George Forman would do the trick??
