Pork Tenderloin - crock pot recipe!

This recipe originally came from AllRecipes.com

I made this about a month ago and my husband gave it over-the-top, rave reviews.  The amount of red cooking wine made it a little sharp for me, so just adjust the recipe according to what you like.  Was great served with mashed potatoes and broccoli!

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker


1 (2 pound) pork tenderloin  ** The last two tenderloins I have used have been about 1-1/2 lbs. I still used the full amounts of the rest of the ingredients even though the tenderloin was smaller.**
1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
1 cup water
3/4 cup red wine
3 tablespoons minced garlic
3 tablespoons soy sauce
freshly ground black pepper to taste

Place pork tenderloin in a slow cooker with the contents of the soup packet. Pour water, wine, and soy sauce over the top, turning the pork to coat. Carefully spread garlic over the pork, leaving as much on top of the roast during cooking as possible. Sprinkle with pepper, cover, and cook on low setting for 4 hours. Serve with cooking liquid on the side as au jus.
