Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin With Garlic-Ginger Sauce

Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin With Garlic-Ginger Sauce

The best recipes are simple: apply a seasoning rub to a cut of meat, cook low and slow, then finish off over high heat with a flavorful sauce. And this recipe is no different! Pork tenderloin is a lean cut of meat that turns tender and retains it’s moisture when cooked in a slow cooker. The beautiful thing about slow cookers is the set it and forget it (well, sort of) feature; prepare the pork loin in the morning, then make the sauce and broil or grill when you arrive home.

The bold Garlic-Ginger Sauce brings this dish home. Combine all the sauce ingredients and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, then reduce heat and allow the sauce to simmer and thicken a bit. The sliced knob of ginger alongside the honey and coconut aminos makes for a sweet, savory and spicy sauce. To the delight of your taste buds, the cooked tenderloin will soak up this sauce as you’re basting it.

Serve the tenderloin with a side salad or roasted vegetables. If you have leftover meat, store in a container in the fridge and enjoy for leftovers the next day.
