I love slow cooker meals and this one is no different! Took about 1 minute to put it together in the crockpot and just another few minutes at the end to throw the sauce together. I paired this with a hearty Brussels Sprout and Cabbage Salad. It was the perfect pair! You can find that recipe here.
- 2 lb pork tenderloin
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/2 cup chicken stock
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup water
- 3 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp soy sauce/tamari/coconut aminos
- 2 tsp ginger, minced
- 1 green onion for garnish
- fresh parsley for garnish
- salt and pepper to taste
Combine ground ginger, cinnamon, garlic powder and crushed red pepper in a small bowl. Rub the mixture on all sides of the tenderloin. Place in the bottom of the crockpot and pour chicken stock around the meat.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
Near the end of the cooking time, combine apple cider vinegar, water, honey, soy sauce/coconut aminos/tamari, minced garlic, minced ginger and salt and pepper in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat, simmering for about 5 minutes to thicken the sauce.
Preheat oven to broil. Cover a baking pan with tinfoil and place tenderloin on it. Brush all side of the tenderloin with the sauce and broil for 1 minute on each side.
Remove from broiler, slice, top with garnishes and remaining sauce.
