How To Make This Slow Cooker Maple and Brown Sugar Pork Tenderloin Recipe:
To begin making this recipe, take out the pork tenderloins and sprinkle on the salt and pepper lightly on each side.
Then get out your slow cooker and spray it with nonstick cooking spray and place the pork tenderloins in.
Now in a small bowl combine the maple syrup, minced garlic, mustard, honey, brown sugar, cider vinegar, and thyme until you get a nice sauce.
Then pour the sauce over top of the pork tenderloin.
Make sure to turn the pork in the sauce to cover it fully in the sauce.
Now turn on the slow cooker on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours.
When the pork is cooked all the way through, remove the pork from the slow cooker and then cover it with foil to keep it warm.
Then pour the juices from the slow cooker into a sauce pan and bring it to a boil over medium heat and let it simmer for 5 minutes.
Now, in a small bowl combine the cornstarch and cold water, whisking it together into the simmering juices and cook everything for another minute to let the sauce thicken up.
To finish this delicious recipe, slice the pork and serve it with the sauce made from the juice.
