Sunday and crock pots just seem to go together for me. 🙂 I love waking up (late…) and just being able to pop dinner in the crock pot, turn a switch and voila, dinner is done! This tenderloin was a first for me, and I have to say it was one of the best pieces of pork I have ever had. The flavor of the apples, brown sugar and cinnamon is a perfect combination, it wasn’t too strong and it was nice and tender. Plus an added bonus was the house smelled delicious, just like a Sunday fall day should. 🙂

  1. Hi Kate,
    I plan to try this yummy looking dish in the next few days. One question, though.
    Did you mean to say a 2.5 to 3 lb. Pork LOIN, instead of TENDER loin? Pork tenderloins are typically small, maybe 1.5 lbs. at most. The pic also looks more like a Pork Loin to me. Just want to know so I get get the right stuff in the house.

    1. Hi Chris, sorry for the late reply, no I bought a pork tenderloin for this recipe.. I’m not sure where you live, maybe if your in the U.S (I am in Canada) meats are cut differently, our tenderloins can get quite big

    1. Hi Megan, I hope you enjoy it, I’d probably pair it with some kind of potatoes (I have a recipe under side dishes for awesome parmesan garlic roasted potatoes) and then maybe a salad

  2. Looks delish! I’m wondering if there’s a sauce that you might recommend to go with it. I know people in my family prefer their meat with sauce so I’m trying to figure out what to pair with it. Thoughts?

    1. Hi Devon, I’d probably go with maybe a maple BBQ sauce if you can find one or check Pinterest for a recipe maybe
