Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin with Orange Hoisin Glaze
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 4 hours total, 1 hour on high setting and then 3 hours on low setting
This is so easy to make and is so tender from the slow cooker. The sauce adds so much flavor with an Asian flare, and a small amount of simple sugars which you can lower by using a sugar substitute for the honey. This is great served over brown rice or whole grain couscous and a vegetable or two on the side.
1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin, lean
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper, black, ground
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 tablespoons Hoisin sauce
1 tablespoons orange marmalade
2 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons vinegar, balsamic
Place oil in a large skillet and heat over medium high heat. Place pork in skillet and brown for about 4 minutes per side. Place pork in bottom of slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients to skillet and cook for 2 minutes, using a whisk to combine ingredients. Pour sauce over pork. Place cover on slow cooker and cook on high setting for 1 hour then 3 more hours on the low setting. To thicken sauce, mix 1 to 2 teaspoons corn starch with an equal amount of water in a small bowl or cup. Stir into slow cooker sauce during the last 10 minutes of cooking time. Remove tenderloin to a plate and spoon sauce over before serving.
