Easy Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin

I have an on again off again relationship with my slow cooker. I love it, but at the same time, I hate it because I tend to be starving by dinner because of how good my house smells when something has been cooking all day. I found this recipe on All Recipes (if you have an iPhone, get the app, it's AWESOME).

What you need:

1 (2 pound) pork tenderloin
1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
1 cup water
3/4 cup red wine
3 tablespoons minced garlic
3 tablespoons soy sauce
freshly ground black pepper to taste


1. Place pork tenderloin in a slow cooker with the contents of the soup packet. Pour water, wine, and soy sauce over the top, turning the pork to coat. Carefully spread garlic over the pork, leaving as much on top of the roast during cooking as possible. Sprinkle with pepper, cover, and cook on high setting for 4 hours. Serve with cooking liquid on the side as au jus.

I also stabbed the meat so the juices would seep in, next time I make this I'm thinking of placing the garlic inside the slots too. For the au jus I added some cornstarch to thicken it up a little.

This also heated up really well as leftovers. Hope you like it as much as we did!
