Slow cooked pork tenderloin (OAMC)

Here’s a super-easy Once a Month Cooking (OAMC) recipe that you can throw in the crock pot this morning and eat tonight, or that you can prepare really easily and freeze for future meals. To make this for a freezer meal, pre-cook the tenderloin in a minimal amount of liquid in your crock.

Slow Cooked Pork Tenderloin

1 – 2 lb pork tenderloin
2 c apple juice or cider
1 c cranberry sauce
Sesame seeds (optional, to add before serving)

To make as a freezer meal, combine the pre-cooked tenderloin with the juice and sauce in a freezer container and freeze. To serve, reheat slowly in your crock pot or slow cooker, or thaw and heat more quickly directly on the stove. Add sesame seeds just before serving.

To serve tonight, combine uncooked tenderloin with the juice and sauce, and cook on medium heat all day in your crock pot or slow cooker. Add sesame seeds just before serving.

Wow! Great pork recipe! Pork use to get a bad rap, but it is just as lean as chicken and whole lot leaner than beef. Best to you!

Thanks Thom! Yeah, there's a whole lot more good press for pork now then there used to be :-) You've got those great pork loin recipes that I'm going to try out too.
