    My oven runs on gas and unfortunately my little gas tank today ran out. Fortunately, I had my good old crock pot to fall back on. The pork tenderloin I had planned for dinner was now needing a new recipe. All the recipes I looked up had some element that would require more than my crock pot. I was hesitant to make a recipe with no reviews but I had no choice besides eating out and wasting a perfectly good tenderloin. My chance was greatly rewarded. It was a great recipe. I did tweak the recipe and substituted ground coriander for cumin and as I didn't have any on hand. I served this with a garlic brown rice/quinoa mix that I could microwave and a salad. Great dinner and good recipe.
