Was thinking exactly the same thing about which cut of pork to use, loin or tenderloin - changes everything. Price aside, I love both cuts and primarily use the tenderloin, so I'd hate to waste a whole meal when I could cook it another way. Like the recipe, so I may try it and tweak it, but I usually do a recipe as written the first time, before messing with it...
Ingredients list pork TENDERLOIN. Directions say pork LOIN. There's a big difference in cooking these different cuts. Can't see cooking an expensive cut like tenderloin in a crock pot recipe for 6-7 hours! I think this recipe is for pork loin. Need clarification for this recipe. I often run into recipes where tenderloin and loin are use interchangeably which is frustrating. One should know the proper cut of meat to use in a recipe.
Hello, But shouldn't BBQ sauce be added near the end of the cook or even after the cooking? I noticed when smoking, bbq'ing, and even in over if i add BBQ sauce when starting to cook it hardens, and burns the outside of the meat. I like to add BBQ sauce at the end or near the cooking end, say about 10 minutes before I take it out. So after 6 hours of cooking in slow cooker BBQ sauce doesn't get burnt? I rarely use my slow cooker.
