Crock Pot Spicy Pork Tenderloin

Crock Pot Spicy Pork Tenderloin gets so tender in the crock pot it just falls apart.  I love pork served with any meal.  You can add more or less spice to suit your taste in this one. A great dish to serve with just about any side dish you and your family like and so easy in the crock pot.  We love it with Southern green beans and potatoes and skillet fried corn.  This recipe is even better the second day!

1 (2 -3 pound) pork loin roast

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup ketchup

2 teaspoons minced garlic

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup chopped green onions

1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1/3 cup water

several drops hot sauce or pinch of cayenne

1/4 cup butter or margarine, or 4 tablespoons or half a stick, melted

Place your pork loin in the crock pot.  Whisk together all the remaining ingredients and pour over pork loin.  Cook on low for 7 to 8 hours or high for 4 to 5.  Serve sauce from pot over meat and garnish with extra chopped green onions.   Makes 6 to 8 servings depending on size of your tenderloin. Enjoy!

    will this work for a pork tenderloin

      Yes, it should work ok.

  2. Jamie Wagner says:

    This is one of the best recipes I’ve ever tried. I diced a few potatoes and put them in the bottom of my crockpot, then the loin, then poured the sauce of it. It was wonderful. I thought my husband was going to lick his plate. I also mixed up some of the sauce and used it to marinate pork chops which was another huge hit. Then a few nights ago I tossed potatoes in the crockpot with boneless ribs and the sauce. The last 20 min of cooking to threw some corn on the cob in there. Love this recipe.

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I am so glad you enjoyed this recipe! Thank you so much for letting me know. We love this one too 🙂

  3. I have just put this into the slow cooker. I am using a pork shoulder picnic roast as that is what I have on hand. Looking forward to tonight’s supper! 🙂

    1. Just wanted to let you know that it came out perfect! The meat was so tender and juicy and the flavour is wonderful. My hubby really enjoyed it and I will be using this recipe again. Probably for the next family gathering. 🙂

      1. The Southern Lady says:

        Thank you so much Nancy. I am so pleased that you liked this recipe and will make it again. Have a great Christmas.

  4. I have made this several times and everyone raves about it each time. I thicken the sauce with a little cornstarch once it is all cooked. I swapped out the butter for canola oil or coconut oil so it would by dairy free and glutten free for my 2 daughters.

  5. Do you slice the roast before putting in crockpot?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      No, I don’t slice it, Cheryl, but I guess you could if you want.

  6. I made this today, Judy, and it was delicious! Thank you so much for the great recipes.

  7. Can leave out the butter?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Yes, I think you could Sue.

  8. Trying this tomorrow with turkey wings, omitting butter. Think I’ll serve it with green beans and mashed potatoes.

  9. Theresa Creasia-Twist says:

    Hi , can I put vegetables in with the pork tenderloin . I can’t wait to try it !

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      This sauce is kind of like barbecue sauce on the meat. It depends if you want the vegetables to taste that way.
