I wanted to make BBQ pork tenderloin in the slow cooker, but not pulled pork. This worked out nicely so I thought I'd post the recipe so I can make it again. Hope you enjoy it too. This was easy to slice, though could have easily been shredded as well. Served with rice to put the extra sauce on, along with a veg (I used peas and carrots). I only cooked 1 pork tenderloin and had lots of sauce leftover so you might only want to double the sauce if you do 3 or more tenderloins I would guess?!?
- 1 -2 lb pork tenderloin
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons vinegar
- 1 tablespoon mustard
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 tablespoon dried onion or 1 teaspoon onion powder
- Place the pork tenderloin into the crockpot.
- Mix all the remaining ingredients together and pour over top of the pork tenderloin.
- Cook on low for 8 hours.
Super easy & with on-hand ingredients! Love it! I had one tenderloin so I made the recipe as written except I was out of soy sauce so I just left that out. The amount of sauce was perfect for the one tenderloin because in the end I shredded it (well, I touched it & it shredded itself. LOL), stirred it all together & then served it in flour tortillas with some roma tomato slices, Mexican 4-blend cheese, green onions & sour cream. Strange combination for BBQ, I know, but we were getting ready to watch football & wanted quick eats & easy cleanup! :D The flavor was outstanding & we spent the day drooling while it cooked. Definitely worth the wait! Thanks for sharing your creation, Babzy!
The grocery store closest to me has these amazing deals on marked down meat. I bought a tenderloin a few weeks ago and froze it; defrosted it end of last week. When things worked that we were out of the house for dinner 2 days in a row I knew things were getting desperate so I cooked it in the crockpot and then put it all in the fridge. Today, 2 days later, we shredded it and heated it up with the leftover sauce and a little bbq sauce from a bottle. Great flavor. Thanks!
Great recipe.....even my picky guys eat it! Good flavors! Thanks for sharing!
