Figure today is a perfect day to make one of my Pork Tenderloin's and I figured I would share my recipe.
Now some people might like to brown their Tenderloin's first, but I don't. I want it to soak up all the goodness in the crockpot bath so it is up to you if you want to brown it first :)
What you need:
1-2 pounds pork tenderloin ( I actually use a Teriyaki based one I bought at the commissary that is just over a pound)
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
1 cup chicken broth (don't have broth, use 1 chicken bullion cube to one cup water)
1/4 cup brown sugar
4 cloves garlic, chopped (I am lazy and have minced garlic in a jar I keep in the fridge so I use a teaspoon)
1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 large onion, chopped
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
What to do:
Put your tenderloin into crock pot, cover with the teriyaki sauce mixture. Cook on High for about 4 hours, or low for 6 to 8 turning 2 to 3 times during the cooking time to ensure even doneness and to get them juices soaked in.
Remove tenderloin from the crock pot and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing which it pretty much just falls apart so slice or shred it..either way it still taste the same!
If desired, spoon liquid over slices when serving OR you can thicken it up with a little cornstarch and make a gravy to spoon over this. I serve mine with rice. MM MM
