Orange Maple Pork Tenderloin

Have you noticed a trend with my menu lately.  I notice that they all contain wine.  Hmmm...  It IS a great tenderizer, it does add a depth of flavor and I just happen to have some around from all the holiday goodness!   Great fancy dinner in 2 simple steps.

1.  Place the cut pork tenderloin into the slow cooker. Pour the orange juice, wine, maple syrup and oil over the meat.  Top with rosemary, salt and pepper. (For dried measurements, Kitchen Technique #1.) Cover and cook on low for 7 1/2 hours or high for 3 1/2 hours.

2.  Combine orange juice and cornstarch in a small cup and mix until dissolved,  pour into slow cooker and stir through.  Cover and cook on high for 30 minutes.

  1. Natasha this is such a great recipe! I can't that fancy meal comes from a crock pot! I will have to do this soon. Thanks for your kind encouragement about my market gig, it should be fun! It will be a ton of work too and someday when I am old and gray I am going to have to find a way to use my brain instead of my body! Haha! If you want to do classes you should look into it, I bet you would be great too!

  2. I'm in! I love recipes that use the slow cooker! The slow cooker is my bestest friend in the kitchen when it comes to savory foods. Thanks!
