Growing up in Kentucky, we ate a lot of pork. Whether it was bacon, chops or tenderloin, I loved it. My mother was always a healthy cook and considered pork "the other white meat", and pork tenderloin was one of her favorite things to make.

When you're looking for a healthy recipe that basically cooks itself, turn no farther than this dish. Just pull out your slow cooker, quickly sear the pork, and place everything in the pot. While you're running errands, playing with the kids or helping them with their homework, this meal will do all the cooking for you.

    My crockpot must have a different cooking temperature. I’ve been cooking the tenderloin for almost 3 hours. I turned the crockpot up to high at about an hour and 1/2 in and the pork is still not done. 2 hours on low does not seem correct, I’m guessing I’ll need at least 3 hours if not more. It’s almost 7pm and I have a couple of cranky/hungry guys. It looks and smells good, but it’s taking much longer than the time allotted.

    Will the cook time change if I’m just using 1 pork tenderloin?

    If I wanted to use this recipe but cook a 1.5 lb pork loin centre roast instead if a pork tenderloin what would be the cooking time?
