Day 6 ~ Slow Cookers

My slow cooker is way under used in my kitchen -- I really have to be better at using it -- it is a great time saver and just because winter is over doesn't mean it shouldn't be used -- especially on nights with lots of activities or we're all going in different directions. This recipe for Saucy BBQ Pork Tenderloin is perfect for those kinds of days. We all loved this recipe -- except I did have a wee problem. My problem was the cut of meat that the recipe called for -- pork tenderloin. This is a wonderful cut of meat but is spendy and in my opinion, better suited for more quick cook applications. Skip the tenderloin and use pork loin -- it is just as lean and wonderful and will cost you much less.

Saucy BBQ Pork Tenderloin

2 to 3 lb pork tenderloin, trimmed
Salt and pepper to taste
3 c water
18-oz bottle barbeque sauce, divided
Optional: 12-oz pkg Kaiser Rolls, Split

Place pork in a slow cooker; season with salt and pepper. Pour water over pork. Cover and cook on high setting for about 5 hours. Pour off half of remaining liquid in slow cooker; add ¾ of barbeque sauce. Cover and cook for one additional hour, or until pork is very tender and falls apart. Serve on Kaiser rolls, if desired, accompanied by remaining barbeque sauce. Serves 4 to 6.

    I just made this for our Sunday lunch! It was delicious! My recipe is actually a little different from this one but basically the same. I cooked mine all night on low for 10 hrs...and kept waking up smelling it all thru the night! To be honest, I didn't know if I was in the mood for it for lunch after waking up and being drowned in bbq smell! LOL! i think next time I'll make it during the day and use your recipe of 5 hrs on high! :) Thanks for sharing.

    I'm like you, my slow cooker is under used as well. I did find a recipe for baked beans in another GBP cookbook also for slow cooker. For our next get together I will have to make this pork and the beans as well. I will do a whole crock pot theme!lol

  1. I am definatly a sucker for anything made in the slow cooker....especially in the summer time. The cooker doesn't heat the whole house and the food is so moist and juicy. I wish I could grab that BBQ right off of this screen. :)

    I make this often for Sunday lunch. My recipe called for pork butt, and I slow cook it all night long, in water and salt and pepper. By morning, it's falling apart. I drain it and then add the bbq sauce and let it stay on low till lunch time. It's always a hit. :)
