Easy Dinner Recipe: Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

This recipe (if you can call three simple steps and three common ingredients a recipe) is the easiest ever…

I thought I was heading out of town this morning, so decided to make my family’s favourite pork tenderloin in my slow cooker, to be ready when I returned at dinner time. The weather changed my travel plans, but I still have the same dinner plans.

All you need is a pork tenderloin, one half cup (approximately) of maple syrup and one cup (again, approximately, I never measure) of frozen blueberries. Put the tenderloin in the slow cooker, pour the maple syrup over it and then the blueberries over the syrup. Set the slow cooker to low and let the pork cook 8 hours. Remove the meat from the slow cooker and let it cool (10 minutes) before slicing. Pour the juice, as is, over top after slicing. If you prefer a thicker, gravy-like sauce, stir one tablespoon of flour into a bit of cold water, then add to the juice in the pot. Turn the setting up to high and cook until the sauce thickens. Serve with potatoes or rice and another vegetable (broccoli is our favourite) for a healthy family dinner…
