Slow Cooker Apple Roasted Pork Tenderloin

Slow Cooker Apple Roasted Pork Tenderloin

Pork and apples – one of life’s perfect pairs. Don’t you think? That’s what made me excited to try out a recipe I found here – the only problem was I forgot the recipe when it came time to assemble it, add to that the fact that I didn’t know I had forgotten the recipe and didn’t want to look it back up, and you get a variation that turned out to be quite good.

What You’ll Need

  • 1 lb pork tenderloin
  • 2 Red Delicious Apples
  • 1 cup Apple Cider


  1. Core and slice the apples
  2. Cut slits in the pork tenderloin across the short end to form pockets for some of the apple slices
  3. Stuff apple slices in slits
  4. Place remaining apples in bottom of slow cooker
  5. Put stuffed tenderloin on top of apples in slow cooker
  6. Pour cider over all of it and cook on low 7-8 hours

I did everything but the cooking the night before – letting the pork loin marinate in the cider overnight in the refrigerator. When I left for work, I simply popped the slow cooker in its base, set it to low, and let it go. It was fall-apart tender when I got home that evening. Dad really liked this recipe, but it actually came out a bit dry to me – next time I fix it, I will probably prepare some sort of apple gravy (like this) to go with it.
