Cooking and Entertaining: Asian Crock Pot Pork Tenderloin

Served atop rice with a few chives as a garnish, this pork tenderloin is delicious!


One of life’s joys is coming home to the aroma of dinner.  Since I’m the cook, it’s not a routine experience, except when I use a slow cooker.  Slow cookers are a godsend-they’re simple to use, easy to clean and enable one to dump a few ingredients into a crock and have an amazing meal 6 hours later.

What I learned from making this pork for more than 20 years is that it’s a very forgiving recipe.  My cooking time has been as many as 10 hours and as few as 6 with the same results.  If you’re looking for an easy meal, this Asian Crock Pot Pork Tenderloin is the one for you!
