Slow Cooked Pork Tenderloin with Apples & Honey

Sunday is the perfect day for a slow-cooked meal. Our family tradition is to start with a late breakfast on Sunday, skip lunch and sit down to an early Sunday dinner. I like to pull out my slow-cooker for these meals as I have the extra time to prep in the afternoon, and by dinner there is an amazing meal waiting for us.

This is the season for picking apples, so this Sunday I’ve incorporated them into our slow cooked meal. A side of roasted cauliflower is the perfect accompaniment to this dish!

1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 c. chicken broth, 1/2 c. honey, 2 apples, 1 onion, 1 1.5 lb pork tenderloin (not shown) and 1 c. apple cider (not shown), salt
Peel the apple and chop along with the onion.
Place the pork tenderloin in the crockpot.
Put the onions and apples on top of the pork tenderloin.
Add 1/2 c. honey, 1/2 c. chicken broth, 1/2 c. apple cider, 1/2 tsp. apple cinnamon and a little bit of salt to the top
This is going to make the house smell amazing!
Set your slow cooker to low heat and walk away for 8-10 hours. My slow cooker usually cooks food very quickly, so I’ll be checking it in about 6-7 hours.
8 hours later…dinner is ready! Served on a bed of homemade cheddar-garlic red-skinned mashed potatoes with a side of vegetables. Sooooo good!
It was so nice to come home to a delicious meal after my daughter’s cheer competition today. Her team placed 3rd!
I have to say one of my favorite parts of the competition day is when all the cheerleaders converge onto the floor at the end of all the routines to dance and cheer….
