These past few months my household has ate quite a bit of pork. Honestly, it has never been my favorite meat. Anytime I ever made any type of pork I always tended to overcook it and it came out too dry to be enjoyable. Then I came across some pork tenderloin recipes. This cut of pork is perfect in the slow cooker. As long as it isn’t overdone it comes out tender, juicy, and absorbs all the flavors that you add to the meal. This is another meal that my kids will actually eat without complaint. The best part is, it is super simple to make!
Although not as lean as chicken, I figured it out to be about 11g of fat for 4 ounces which isn’t terrible. Trust me it is definitely worth it! I usually make potatoes to go with this and use the sauce as a “gravy”, but any type of vegetable or side that you prefer would go with it just as well.
I apologize for no picture attached, I promise I will add one the next time I make this!
- 2-3lbs of pork tenderloin
- 10 oz can of mushroom soup (I pick fat free to save calories. Tastes the same)
- 1 tsp of liquid aminos (I use this as a replacement for soy. Much better for you.)
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 tsp of black pepper
- 1 can of French onion soup (or you can use onion soup mix and a can of water which is what I do as I never seem to have a can of french onion soup in the house)
- Spray crock pot with non stick spray
- Add tenderloins
- In a bowl, mix together soups and spices and pour over tenderloins
- Cook on low for 4 hours. (Check periodically as it gets close to the 4 hour mark with a meat thermometer as this doesn’t take long to cook and if it is overdone it really doesn’t taste that great!)
I figure the macros to be about 30P 9C 12F for 116g of pork if you use the products that I use. Remember, any time you switch an ingredient or even a brand, it will affect the macros so this is just an approximate number.
That’s all there is to it. Simple right? Let me know if you try it and what you think!
