So instead of music today, I thought I'd share one of my favorite crockpot recipes, stolen from another blog. What I love about this recipe: it's easy, it's delicious, my kids will eat pork tenderloin and it makes tasty leftovers. Enjoy!
Pineapple Pork Tenderloin CrockPot Recipe
- 3 pound pork tenderloin
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 orange bell pepper, seeded and sliced
- 1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced
- 2 tablespoons gluten free soy sauce
- 1/2 cup apple juice
- 16 ounces frozen or canned pineapple
- Combine meat, sugar, spices, and cornstarch in a plastic zipper bag (I add a little extra of the spices). Seal and shake well to coat. Pour contents of bag into crockpot.
- Add garlic and peppers on top of the meat so that they're not soaking on the bottom.
- Pour in soy sauce, apple juice, and an entire bag of frozen pineapple. (I add an extra splash of the soy sauce because I like the salty flavor.)
- Cover and cook on low for 7-9 hours, or on high for 4-6. (The recipe said she cooked hers on high for 2 hours, then on low for another 6.)
- Serve with rice or pasta. (I like to serve mine over rice.)
