Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin on a bed of onions on a white plate.

I just got back from summer vacation and let me tell you, it is days like this that I’m grateful for my slow cooker.  I already know I’ll hit up the grocery store first thing to replenish milk and fresh fruits and veggies and then I’ll spend the day procrastinating the mounds of laundry. A quick prep meal would come in handy, but slow cookers take forever right? Not so. See, I’ll grab a tenderloin at the grocery store. They cook in 3 to 4 hours. That means I can still utilize the convenience of the slow cooker while I catch up on tv shows do laundry. If the family is lucky, they’ll even get a side salad with it. Time to get back into the swing of things around here with regular life and enjoy the last few fleeting weeks of summer.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 3 to 4 hours on high

Ingredients

1 pork tenderloin
1/4 cup worcestershire
2 TB. red wine vinegar
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 white onion, halved and sliced

1. Place the pork tenderloin in the slow cooker. Pour in worcestershire sauce and red wine vinegar over the tenderloin.

2. Sprinkle the tenderloin with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle the onion slices on top.

3. Cook on high for 3 to 4 hours. Or low 4 to 5 hours.

Quick prep slow cooker pork tenderloin. Very easy recipe. Came together very quickly. The pork came out super tender. Flavoring needs to be punched up. Intend next time to use cayenne or red pepper flakes. Will make this again.

This is really good! I served it up with the Hawaiian sweet rolls on the side and the two play really well together.

For this pork recipe I did add a tablespoon of honey to the liquid ingredients, and used a “Black and Red” pepper from Penzey spices. I considered dumping the remainder of the can of crushed pineapple (from the rolls) into the pot, but decided that would stray too much from the original recipe the first time out of the gate.

Thank you for dinner inspiration tonight!

Hi Rachel – just stumbled upon your blog tonight and I must admit I've printed out a bunch of your slow-cooker recipes. Would this one work with a pork loin roast instead of the tenderloin? Any adjustments to the recipe or time? Thanks so much – looking forward to trying these scrumptious sounding treats!

Welcome! I hope you stick around 🙂

Yes, this recipe will work with a pork loin. The cooking time will definitely need an adjustment. For a pork loin, cook on low for 8 hours. Because pork loins are much bigger, I would also double the rest of the ingredients, particularly the salt. Pork needs a lot of salt, especially in the slow cooker.

And remember that pork tenderloins are about 1 lb so you can use that to figure out the adjustments and measurements on a multiple pound pork loin (which vary in weight). So you may need to triple or quadruple the spices. The onion you can still get away with one or two.

What size pork tenderloin did you use? Thanks for some great recipes, keep them coming. 🙂

Most tenderloins weigh right around 1 pound.

I like it and love to enjoy reading new things and I also like to spread the all beneficial things for health.

wow! this looks soooooo good 🙂
