Pork tenderloin cooked low and slow in the slow cooker with flavors from French Onion Mix and sherry wine.
I finally, FINALLY had a weekend at home, with nothing to do but check things off my wedding to-do list. Which actually meant I had a TON to do. Fortunately we were able to pick ceremony music, choose ceremony readings, buy these, pick out Marc’s ring, make progress on the seating chart, and I found my rehearsal dinner dress. All that, and I was finally able to cook and bake as much as I wanted!
This recipe isn’t from this weekend, though. I’m still working on getting the pictures from the camera to the computer…I have a limit on weekend productivity and I’ve maxed out. I made this pork tenderloin last week when I knew between working out and errands I had to run after work, I would be starving the second I walked in the door. You have no idea how happy I was that I planned ahead when I got home that night. All I had to do was pop some bread and veggies in the oven, and before I knew it dinner was ready.
I’ve had very little experience cooking (okay, none) pork tenderloin. From past experience eating pork tenderloin, I was expecting this pork to be sliceable. As in, I would take the entire tenderloin out of the crock pot and then slice it cross wise. This was not the case. Instead, the pork was fork tender and was melt-in-your-mouth good. The pork soaks up all of the flavor from the french onion soup mix, and in Marc’s words it was “phenomenal.” Definitely a crock pot winner.
