Crockpot Pork with Honey Garlic sauce

It's a very quiet Sunday and although my knee is still hurting we must eat so thinking ahead of myself I took a pork tenderloin out of the freezer last night and I'm putting together something in my crockpot for our dinner.

I mixed a few herbs and spices together for a rub type seasoning hopefully to combine some flavors and add a sweet sauce to enhance it.

Pork is very versatile white meat. Add a sauce to top it and you can make each pork dish different and using your crockpot makes it even easier.  Tasty and easy.  You can't get much better.

Rice as a side and a vegetable and you're set.  Avoiding carbs eliminate the starch.


1 lb. + pork tenderloin
3 T olive oil
1/2 tsp.garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. thyme
1/4 tsp. red pepper
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. salt

Sprinkle pork tenderloin with above seasoning.  In a medium size pan place 3 T. olive oil and gently sear pork on both sides until browned. Add a little water (about 1/2 cup) to pan and scrape all the sides of the plan and add to crockpot.

Place pork in crockpot on high approximately 3 hours or more.


 3 T. olive oil
2 large cloves garlic minced
1 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce

In a small pot place olive oil and minced garlic.  Simmer slowly for about 3 minutes being careful not to let garlic brown.  Add soy sauce and honey.  Stir and let simmer for approximately 5 minutes.

Remove pork tenderloin from crockpot.  Discard drippings.

Slice and with a large spoon, spoon honey garlic sauce over pork or place sauce in a bowl for those who want to  dip the pieces of pork separately.

Serve immediately.  

Note:  You can serve the pork without the sauce and in a gravy boat or a small bowl allow each to spoon sauce on pork to the liking.
