Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin with Garlic Ginger Sauce

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.  

Ingredients

Serves: 4

  • 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

*Sauce*

  • 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

Directions

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.  

Enjoy!
