This is a simple recipe that makes a delicious dinner any night of the week.
My husband isn’t a huge slow cooker recipe fan, but he loved this. He didn’t believe it actually came from a slow cooker because it was so juicy and flavorful.
I am obsessed with the citrus zing this pork tenderloin has. I love when I have a little extra flavor in my meat, and this does the job.
I am usually not a huge pork person, but this recipe has become a regular at our house. I just love how easily and quickly it comes together. The meat is also so juicy and moist. I love cutting it and seeing all the delicious juice seep out.
I also love how delicious my house smells when I come home. If you are looking for a quick, delicious, healthy, and picky eater approved meal, than you need to try this one. I promise you’ll love it.
how to get your pork tenderloin juicy
One thing people assume when cooking pork roast, is putting the fat side down, when cooking a pork tenderloin in the slow cooker. However, you should be putting the fat side up of the tenderloin. When you put the fat side down, the top dries out.
All the juice from cooking, is at the bottom of the slow cooker, where the fat is. While the good meat of the pork tenderloin, is drying out. It’s important to let the meat sit in the juice. You want to keep the actual meat moist as it cooks, not the fat.
Some recipes may call for the fat side down, but for the perfect moist tenderloin, you will want the fat to be up.
The best way to rub spices onto your pork tenderloin
Rubbing spices on your pork tenderloin can get a little messy. However, we have found that when we mix the spices on a plate, and roll the tenderloin and pat spices into it at the same time, we get the best results.
This allows the pork to pick up spices as it rolls on the plate, then you also have your hand to pat and rub the mixture in.
