This recipe can be adapted to make on top of the stove or in the oven, I have made this many times in the past it is very good!

Something is definitely OFF with this recipe. Merely browning pork tenderloin and an hour in the crockpot made it fork tender. What's with the 8 hours? CRAZY! And the sauce was off too. I had to tweak it with honey and some ketchup and it was runny even with the corn starch slurry added. The end result was ok but certainly not restaurant comparable as so many here swooned.
