Simple Slow Cooked Balsamic Pork Tenderloin

I love slow-cooked dishes that require so little prep that I can throw it all in the crockpot before work and come home to a delicious meal. This is one of those recipes. My mornings usually consist of spending 10 minutes waking up my daughter, making her breakfast, and getting us both ready. Since we are usually in such a rush, I prefer our evenings, where we spend the most time together. I love cooking for my family, but I don’t mind the days where I can come home from work and just relax. This meal gave me that extra quality family time, for only 10 extra minutes of prep in the morning!

There won’t be a lot of prepping pictures to accompany this recipe, since time was of the essence in the morning when I was putting it together. But believe me when I say, it was SO EASY!

balsamic pork

Doesn’t that look so good?

1 2-3 pound boneless pork tenderloin
1.5 cups chicken or vegetable broth
3/4 cups balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (a little more if you like the heat)
4 cloves garlic, chopped

Mix together all ingredients except for pork tenderloin in your slow cooker.
Add in your pork (I flipped mine over a few times in the pot to get all sides seasoned) – see, I wasn’t kidding when I said E.A.S.Y!
Cook for 4 hours on high, or 6-8 hours on low (I did 7).

Makes about 6 servings. Serve over rice with a healthy helping of broccoli (the sauce tastes delicious with both!)
